    Construction of the flood retention basin began in September 1972. Official commissioning was in March 1994 after a successful trial. In total, about 30 km of dams were built, 2 million cubic meters of soil moved, pumping stations and bridges built. Central is the final building with 116 meters in Salzderhelden at Einbeck. It includes five segments. The middle three have segmented weirs of 15 meters in length. All five segments are equipped with fish belly flaps for flood relief. Since 2000, operation has been optimized by a process control system in the control center as well as a computer-aided control and flood prediction model.

    This retention basin has already sometimes protected the residents of the Leinetal from flooding
