    The basic planning work was completed in 1957. 1962 began the preparatory work, such as the laying of roads and a drinking water pipe. The main dam was built from 1982 to 1987. The commissioning and completion of the dam took place in 1989. The shut-off structure, the 320 m long and 40 m high dam of the dam, consists of a riprap with asphalt concrete inner seal. The maximum dam volume of the dam is 25.9 million m³ with an annual inflow of about 138 million m³.

    Water always has a certain fascination. And when there is a lot of water, like here at the Wuppertal dam, the eye can hardly see enough.

    On the picture (photo 1) you can see the bridge of the B229 from Remscheid-Lennep to Radevormwald. On the left the Wuppertal dam with the overflow structure (not one of the pre-dams).
