On March 31, Bühler Stadtwerke invited the project partners and local stakeholders to the first round table of phase 2. Representatives of the forestry authorities, local councils, as well as from agriculture, research, and nature conservation were invited and turned up in large numbers for the first face-to-face meeting. The participants defined the topics for the following project years: "Who may use how much water and who has priority? Will agriculture have to cut back on water-intensive corn cultivation in the future and grow fewer "thirsty plants" instead? Shouldn't that also be encouraged by politicians? Does forestry need drip irrigation for replanting? What value does nature have in planning water needs? And why do we still need drinking water to flush toilets?" These questions were quoted in the article by Patricia Klatt that appeared in the Bühler Boten on April 2. The next roundtable will be held on June 23, 2022, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. After an information about the project, sampling and mapping will be discussed, moderated by Dr. Gisela Wachinger, DIALOGIK gGmbH. All stakeholders and interested parties in the Bühl-Schwarzwaldhochstrasse region are cordially invited and can register by contacting the Stadtwerke at biowawi∂stadtwerke-buehl.de.
