Eine der vielen Talsperren im Bergischen Land, beliebter Ort zur Abkühlung im Sommer.
Bevertalsperre is the oldest service water reservoir and was built from 1896 to 1898. To be more precise, the old Bevertalsperre reservoir was built during these years. It had a capacity of 3.3 million cubic metres and provided Wuppertal’s industrial sector with service water.
Today, Bevertalsperre is primarily used for the purpose of maintaining the minimum water level of the Wupper and as flood protection. It was built between 1935 and 1938 and went into operation in 1938. It is connected to the Neye and Schevelinger valley reservoirs by tunnels. Together they form the so-called “Beverblock”. The facility has a storage area of 200 ha, a storage depth of 31.5 m and a storage capacity of 23.7 million m3.
