    again a lap with the bike, very pleasant today - because hardly any wind and not too cold ...
    And also inspected the Wittgendorf solar park, which I recently discovered through aerial photos. There used to be stuff pumped in from the Hirschfelde power station until one day the dam broke ...
    What does the local know about it?

    ... that was before my time at WGD, but, I'll ask around, there are still many who worked at the Hirschfelder KW.

    So, in a nutshell: KW Hirschfelde (since around 1910) has traditionally been supplied by the Turow open-cast mine (known as the Hirschfelde open-cast mine until 1947). In return, Poland received electricity from Hirschfelde and also sank the ashes in the opencast mine. With the unrest that began around 1980 in Poland (keyword Solidarnosc) and the newly built Polish power plant Turów, coal deliveries from Poland were stopped at their insistence and the return of ashes was frozen. Hirschfelde then received coal from Berzdorf and Olbersdorf. There were plans in the drawer to dredge the whole of Zittau outside the ring. With this in mind, it was a stroke of luck for Zittau and the surrounding area that everything collapsed in 1990 and the GDR was annexed by the FRG. In any case, the ash problem remained for the time being. As a quick fix, the ashes were washed into the basin of today's solar field. As I said, luckily it was over in 1990.

    Thank you
    We had ESP lessons at the power station in 1984/85, and I still remember the thick pipes along the B99 ...
    The dirty seepage water was sure to mix perfectly with the water that had already been enriched in color by the Mandau ... The environment was subjected to a lot, apart from the dirt in the air ...
