    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 Ronsdorf dam was built in 1898/99 and was the sixth dam built in Germany at the time. Today the gravity dam designed by Professor Otto Intze from Aachen is a listed building.
    The dam dams the Saalbach and served as a drinking water reservoir for the city of Ronsdorf until the 1950s. When it was no longer necessary to use it as a drinking water reservoir and there were structural defects, the water level had to be halved to 9.64 m. Due to problems with the tightness and the slides for the control, a congestion restriction was set to 6 m in 1994.
    Since the city of Wuppertal was unable to make a financial investment at that time, citizens of Ronsdorf founded the Ronsdorfer Talsperre e. V., who subsequently collected money for repairs and was committed to maintaining the dam.
    In 1998 talks began between the friends' association, the city of Wuppertal and the Wupperverband, which dealt with water management and the associated rehabilitation of the dam.
    On April 28, 1999, the Wupperverband finally took over the Ronsdorf dam from the city of Wuppertal ... "
