In the 1970s, the Beek and Mühlenau were canalised and barrages were installed in order to regulate the water level. These barrages were then replaced by rock ramps during the course of renaturation work in Ellerbek so that the water’s fish could move more freely. Three parcels of land, located between Krönkampsweg and the Gooswischgraben river in the south, were also afforested.
