At the request of Residents’ Association Meerhoven and Stichting Beheer Park Meerland the pumping station in Park Meerland has been shut down from 8 February 2021. With the current frost, it might soon be possible to skate in the park.
The pumping station is managed by De Dommel Water Board and takes water from a lower level to a higher level. By switching off the pumping station and closing weirs, the chance of ice formation is promoted. Due to work, the pumping station cannot be shut down at this time.
