Function Controls / Current lake levels

Here you will find the current dates on which function controls will be carried out on the closing mechanisms. Lower-lying waters must not be accessed on these days. Please note: These areas should generally not be accessed as there is always an element of risk involved!

Stay well back of dry riverbeds. They can quickly change into rapidly flowing waterways. The KWO assumes no liability for accidents that may occur.
