Bike Touring Highlight
The Schevelingen dam is a drinking water dam with a capacity of just 300,000 m³ of water. It was built between 1938 and 1941 and is part of the Silver, Neye and Eschbach Dams of the Wupper Association. An underground tunnel leads from the Silbertalsperre to the Neyetalsperre, which in turn is connected to the Eschbachtalsperre in Remscheid and the neighboring Bevertalsperre. Together, the Silbertalsperre, Bevertalsperre, Neyetalsperre and the Mühlenteich Wasserfuhr form the so-called Bever block.
The dam is a rockfill dam with an asphalt concrete outer seal.
The dam is primarily intended to clean the water collected from the catchment area by settling dirt and suspended matter.
