    The reservoir of the Hebringhauser dam is best seen from the 215m long protected monument dam, over which the trail leads. Otherwise, the area around the dam for water protection reasons at a distance of about 100m is fenced with a fence. In addition to drinking water supply, the dam also serves to store hot water and flood protection for the central Wupper area.

    Was achieved from 1898 to 1901 as the "Barmer Dam" based on plans by Otto Intze as a weight dam. During the last renovation, the air side was renewed with natural concrete design using sprayed concrete. The waterworks below (currently being renovated) also sells water from the Kerspetalsperre (almost 19 km as the crow flies to the southeast at a height of approx. 340 m).

    "... The Herbringhauser Talsperre (until 2006" Obere Herbringhauser Talsperre ") was built from 1898 to 1901 by the city of Barmen, which was still independent at the time. The construction cost 1,500,000 marks at the time. To be able to build the wall quarries had to be purchased. The stones and earth were transported by field railway. For this purpose, 2 locomotives and tipping wagons were taken over from the Barmer-Beyenburger Eisenbahn and brought to the construction site via a siding During the excavation for the dam, 7,000 m³ of earth and 1,500 m³ of rock were removed, while 42,000 m³ of greywacke quarry stones were used to build the wall.
    The dam serves to supply the city of Wuppertal with drinking water. The dam has been rebuilt and renovated several times in the course of its operation. For example, in 1933 the dam was raised by 4 m. In the years from 2000 to 2003 the wall was given a water-side geomembrane seal (plastic sealing membrane), which was applied to the existing shotcrete shell. In 2004 the dam wall and the upstream storage water area were placed under monument protection.
    In 2016, the Wupperverband took over the dam from WSW Energie & Wasser AG. ... "

    The Herbringhauser dam is used to produce drinking water for the east of Wuppertal and is therefore not directly accessible and fenced outside the dam. W - Ronsdorf, the water tower Lichtscheid, Barmen and Beyenburg are supplied from here.
    The dam is bricked and impressively high, but not a fancy gem.
    It is located in an extensive forest area.

    Although the Herbringhauser dam is not one of the large reservoirs, the dam impresses us because of its height.
    Since drinking water is stored here, the area is cordoned off accordingly.
