    For reasons of nature conservation, direct access to most of the bank area of ​​the reservoir is not possible, this was fenced in the context of the renovation. The reservoir is home to, among other things, the endangered European crayfish.

    History and usage
    "... The Ronsdorfer Dam was built in 1898/99 and was the sixth dam built in Germany at that time.Today, the gravity dam, designed by the Aachen Professor Otto Intze, is a listed building.
    The dam dams the Saalbach and served until the 50s as drinking water reservoir of the city Ronsdorf. When the use as a drinking water dam was no longer required and, moreover, structural deficiencies occurred, the water level had to be halved to 9.64 m. Due to problems with the tightness and the sliders for control, a dust limitation to 6 m height was determined in 1994.
    Since a financial investment of the city of Wuppertal was not possible at that time, Ronsdorfer citizens founded in 1994 the Förderverein Ronsdorfer Talsperre e. V., who collected money for repairs in the following years and committed himself to the preservation of the dam.
    In 1998, talks began between the Friends, the City of Wuppertal and the Wupperverband, which had a water management use and related renovation of the dam to the content.
    On April 28, 1999, finally, the Wupperverband took over the Ronsdorfer dam from the city of Wuppertal ... "
