The stream feeds the Buberlesweiher before the forest leaves and then flows through Botnang.
The Buberlesweiher was created in 1972 as a retention basin and wetland biotope. The artificially created, 0.2 ha large Buberlesweiher lies a little west of Botnang.

Location: The Buberlesbach is a little over a kilometer long stream in Baden-Württemberg in the Stuttgart district of Botnang.
History: The word Buberles is derived from Buberle and that from beech. So the stream should be called Buchenbach. This is what the Botnanger Chronicle from 1920 reports.
The Buberlesbach is created in the western winter dump between the wild boar park at the Saufangeiche and the outskirts of Botnang. It has two springs, the natural stream source and the Buberles fountain, which is artificially created near it. The stream feeds the Buberlesweiher even before the forest exits and then flows through Botnang, where it finally flows into Kauffmannstraße, into the likewise faulty Sommerhaldenbach, which then merges with the right butcher brook on the eastern edge of Botnang to form the Feuerbach.
The catchment area, from a geospatial point of view, belongs with its western parts to the Inner Glemswald sub-area of Schönbuch and Glemswald, the rest is in the Feuerbach Bay sub-area of the Stuttgart Bay.
A well, probably built as early as the 19th century, was destroyed by a landslide in 1968. In the early 1970s, the decision was taken to revise the sources. In addition to the fountain system (1970), the Kneipp system was created in 1971 and the Buberles pond was also created. The artificial 0.2 hectare lake is located a little southwest of Botnang in the Winterhalde forest. This retention basin, created in 1970, permanently accumulates 5,000 m³ of water behind its earth dam. In addition to protecting against flooding, the Buberles pond is also used to protect nature and birds, to catch mud and debris and as a fish pond. The stream coming from the west runs through the pond and then flows through Botnang, where it feeds another pond under 0.1 hectares shortly before the mouth.
