Abstract: After a 50-year period of operation the Sylvenstein Dam is to be re-inforced with an additional slurry wall in the dam and a new monitoring system for percolating water. The planned measures can also be understood as a precaution against the consequences of a possible climate change. Due to the dimension and rapid succession of recent flood events in the years 1999, 2002 and 2005, increased operational demands on the dam structures in the alpine area related to climate change are expected in the future. This paper describes the planned construction project that is already being implemented, in more detail
