A relatively unknown green pearl on the border: the Schinveldse woods. In some places seepage water comes to the surface through two thick impermeable clay layers in the soil. Nature offers protection for the drinking water sources and helps to keep the groundwater as clean as possible.
Hidden in the Schinveld forests is WML 's pumping station Schinveld. The forest gradually turns into the moist grasslands along the Red Brook. WML annually pumps 4 billion liters of water here, which accounts 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 marble filtration, among other things.
Enjoy this walking morning. So walk responsibly. That means:
