    The pumping station was built from 1971 to 1973 about two kilometers south of Horumersiel. Its four propeller pumps are able to pump a total of 54,000 liters of water per second from the Hohenstief into the Wangertief. In this way, the drainage of the previously collapsed sluices from Horumersiel, Hohenstiefersiel, Crildumersiel and Hooksiel via the Wangersiel can be ensured.
    In 2007 the system was converted to automatic operation. From here, in addition to the main Wangerland pumping station itself, the Moorland and Wiedel lower pumping stations as well as the Wangersiel in the neighboring Horumersiel are controlled.

    The fish snack at the harbor is highly recommended.
