The Jubachtalsperre is a drinking water dam. Entering the shore area is prohibited!
The Jubachtalsperre was completed between 1904 and 1906 according to the plans of the Aachen professor Otto Intze. The dam is made of quarry stones and was built as a gravity dam. The wall is 152 m long, has a crown width of 4.5 m and is 27.7 m high. The dam has a maximum reservoir volume of 1.05 million m³ and its largest possible surface area is 11.7 ha.
The dam was strengthened and sealed from 1990 to 1991 with a prefabricated sealing wall made of reinforced concrete. A control gallery was created and the drainage and measuring equipment were renewed.
Initially, the plant was operated by the Volme Water Association. Today, the Lüdenscheid Water Procurement Association is the operator of the plant.
