Height Profile


A fairly unknown green pearl on the border: the Schinveldse forests. In some places, seepage water comes to the surface through two thick impermeable layers of clay in the soil. Nature protects the drinking water sources and helps to keep the groundwater as clean as possible.

Hidden in the Schinveldse forests is WML\\\'s pumping station Schinveld. The forest gradually fades into the moist grasslands along the Red Brook. WML pumps 4 billion liters of water here annually, accounting for about 5% of Limburg's drinking water supply.

This walking route takes you past the various water extraction wells and the pumping station where the groundwater is purified by means of, among other things, marble filtration.

Enjoy this walking morning. So walk responsibly. That means:

  • stay on roads and paths;
  • do not damage plants;
  • take garbage with you;
  • keep the dog on a leash and pick up the poop.
