The municipality lies with the initiative "bodenstandig" of the bavarian state ministry for food, agriculture and forestry. At the community council meeting, daniel spaderna from the office for rural development (ale) gave detailed information on the project. A decision on participation has not yet been made, although the municipality is required to take action in view of the water problem on the agricultural land in the froschengraben alone.
Central concerns of "bodenstandig are erosion protection by reducing soil erosion from the fields, water protection by reducing nutrient and sediment input into the water, peak discharges during floods are to be mitigated, and buffers and retention structures are to be created. One of the focal points will be discussions with farmers, as more and more heavy precipitation is having an impact on land use. "Our current landscapes are a discontinued model", said spaderna. Therefore, the implementation should no longer take place at the green table. Rather, the aim was to achieve a participatory effect in the field, with farmers, in addition to the municipality, supporting the goals of "ground-level" should also make their own. The concept is financed 100 percent through the ale. A whole bundle of measures could be carried out.
To the question of the mayor sebastian straubel (CSU), whether the initiative the building of the rain water collector at the sports field oberlauter was delayed up to the conclusion of the procedure, came from the speaker a clear "no". The collector could be tackled independently of it. Mayor’s summary: "we are staying on top of this issue."
