These two sources, Roosteren and Susteren, provide drinking water for parts of Central and South Limburg. Careful handling of the soil is therefore important here. That is why the groundwater protection area runs from the Belgian border straight through the Netherlands all the way to the German border.

This route crosses the entire groundwater protection area with WML pumping stations at various locations. What is unique about Roosteren is that drinking water is made here from both groundwater and Meuse water.

The cycle route passes three important water sources for Central and South Limburg, namely the Roosteren, Susteren and Pey-Echt pumping stations. At this last location, the groundwater is hidden under a clay layer at a depth of about 80 to more than 200 meters.

Enjoy this bike ride, but do it responsibly. That means:

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