Rettet den Mühlbach Logo

A few years ago, Department 8 of the Carinthian provincial government decided that the first 30 metres of the Mühlbach were "permanently dispensable" and sold them to a private individual because he wanted to build a power station.
(At this point we would like to state that we respect the economic interests of the private person in question and that we are also in favour of clean electricity from hydropower! Our concern is exclusively the preservation of the cultural heritage of Mühlbach. The fact that a beautiful landscape or cityscape is compatible with water power is shown by the newly built weir in the ditch at the height of Untermöschach).

The dispensability decision was and is faulty! Since then no water flows in the Mühlbach.
Fish and protected crayfish died; the creek silted up.

Residents with water rights have so far been ignored and are literally left high and dry!
Legally? We believe NO and are therefore calling for the restoration of the Mühlbach. Read more: Save the millstream

The petition in question is a Continuation of an earlier online petition by the citizens' initiativewhich, due to a series of tragic circumstances, could not be further supported at that time. Only those supporters who commented publicly on this petition at the time have been included here again, and we sincerely thank the supporters of that time for their understanding.


The Mühlbach has been flowing in Hermagor for 300 years and has many important functions. Essential civil rights were and are ignored.

We demand that this gem, which belongs to Hermagor, be preserved.

I don't understand why the mill stream is no longer allowed to flow. No politician or official has been able to explain it to me. What's happening? As always, it's about power and money! Not about nature and animals!
WHO is responsible? The community? A single person?
Why is this happening? A case for Resetarits?

Water means life and is indispensable. I can no longer stand idly by and watch the freedom of people and nature being curtailed.
I myself have a spring on my property that has been flowing for untold generations. I would use every means at my disposal to ensure that it continues to do so.

I sign because nature with all its elements is close to my heart.
When I am in a city on summer days, I usually go to a shady park and if possible with wet elements (spring, stream, fountain ... ) to refresh myself and unwind.
The mill stream with its precious bubbling water was to be made to flow again.
Not only adults but also the children and the coming generation will be grateful for this.

In a streamlet bright,
Then in joyful haste
The wayward trout
Passed, like an arrow:
I stood on the shore
And saw in sweet repose
Of the merry little fish
In the clear brook.

As a native of Hermagor, I grew up with the Mühlbach and was enthusiastic about it as a child and teenager. I could well imagine that a revitalization and attractiveness of the Mühlbach today and in the future for Hermagor as a shopping and tourism town still makes a lot of sense. Especially this upper part of the town is not very attractive to me at the moment, and maybe it would be possible to realise the attraction and the small power plant together.

Inka Steinwender

Economy. Health is important and not the business of some !!!!! have but finally enough none also you can take nothing.

Hermagor, our district town - I went to grammar school there for 4 years and after school I often spent beautiful hours with friends in the park, on the banks of the Mühlbach. The movement of the water is a constant inspiration for me as a person and musician anyway, a source of peace and strength. It also keeps my creative motor running. Hermagor, and especially the old town, would lose even more of its appeal if such "romantic", tranquil oases were to fall victim to purely rational thinking.
