Environmental protection at VERBUND
The run-of-river power plant at Mühldorf is not equipped with a fish bypass as this would not deliver any ecological added value. 
During the construction of the pumped storage power plant Reißeck II, a new themed path “Hydropower-Nature-Fishery” was built in 2014. The three kilometre-long path stretches from Mühldorf to the western end of the Rottau compensation basin. Information boards provide information on the ecology and clean electricity generation at the site.
