"Land under" was the name of the game recently after a heavy rainfall in the Freising district of Neustift. Those affected are to be prepared for future cases.
Freising – It was on a Tuesday in mid-May, when it was time for "land under" in Neustift after heavy rainfall. The fire brigade had to move out. In the most recent planning committee meeting, city councillor and honorary commander Anton Frankl (FSM) briefly raised the issue, after the flood protection for Tüntenhausen had been discussed at length. Frankl wanted to know whether it would not be possible to find a resident who would notify the building yard in the event of an emergency.
As Gerald Radlmeier from the civil engineering office explained, it was not the heavy rain event that was the reason for the flooding on that Tuesday, but driftwood that had accumulated in the computer system and led to flooding. "We monitor this, but not on a daily basis," Radlmeier said. Robert Weller (FSM) wanted to know whether it was possible to attach a sensor to the basins so that if there was a risk of flooding, the on-call mobile phone of the building yard would ring and one could intervene.

The specialist planner present at the meeting said that this would be technically possible, but certainly expensive. So what remained was Frankl's proposal to involve citizens. At the suggestion of Werner Habermeyer, flyers are now being distributed to residents with an emergency number that they can call if the computer system is clogged.
As reported, a relentless rain on May 17 at around 15 p.m. caused several streets in Neustift to be flooded. The streets turned into streams within a short time. In Moltkestraße, Körnerstraße and Bismarckstraße, but above all in Wiesenthalstraße, cellars and underground car parks were full. For hours, around 20 firefighters were busy working through various scenes.
