Anette schreiber alin precup goes to the non-swimmer pool. He wears a jacket and warm jogging pants, kneels at the edge of the pool and lets his left hand glide gently into the water. "It’s soft," he says, he says, and shakes off the fresh wetness. "But cold." At 17 degrees, it is clearly too cold for anyone to feel like diving into one of the two pools. Precup has had little to do in the last few weeks. It is much too quiet for the swimming master in the natural swimming pool in ebrach.
Operating company hit hard
Detlef panzer does not like the whole thing either. He is a member of the operating company that keeps the natural swimming pool going. "We had a lot of bad luck this year", he must realize. First the place was hit by heavy rain, as a result of which the whole bath was silted up and could start the season only three weeks late. "And now this!" With this the second mayor of the market town ebrach means the lousy weather exactly with the beginning of the vacation season. Usually this time of year in august is very busy, with 200 to 300 visitors a day, and more on weekends. All of this hits the operating company particularly hard, since they only built and started up a photovoltaic system in the spring to produce their own electricity for the kiosk and pumping station. This investment was completely financed by the operating company acqua- sana.
