Still missing rain: Low water situation on the Rhine and Weser Rivers (25.11.2021)

The prolonged dry period we have been experiencing for several weeks also continued during the last reporting period. Low or even zero rainfall in certain areas made water levels and discharges of Germany’s federal waterways drop further. Currently, the Weser (including its tributary Aller) and the Rhine are particularly affected.

Elbe bei Pillnitz: Das Niedrigwasser eröffnet neue Möglichkeiten der Ufergestaltung…  (refer to: Low water likely to prove tenacious (23th update, 20 December 2018))

Low water likely to prove tenacious (23th update, 20 December 2018)

Since the beginning of December, the water supply increased mainly in the West of Germany. Because of the brief and limited amount of rainfall in the West of Germany and in other, less fortunate river basins, the increase has proven to be short-lived. Since the water levels have fallen again, navigation currently experi-ences disruption. Substantial rainfall around Christmas will replenish the water resources, although forecasts predict the water levels and runoff to decrease once more towards the end of the year.

First UN World Bee Day, first honey harvest at BfG (29 May 2018)

It has been perfect timing – the first BfG honey was harvested shortly after the first UN World Bee Day, which took place on 20 May 2018. On 29 May 2018, the two BfG beekeepers extracted 25 kilos of honey from the combs. It seems as though the bees living on the BfG’s roof feel right at home.
