In Genk, the works at the Slagmolen are progressing well. The past few months the new meandering Stream of the Schabeek has been digged out. In that way, the Schabeek has been disconnected from the Stiemerbeek and so no polluted water from the Stiemerbeek flows into the Schabeek. Recently, a distribution structure was placed so that only clean water streams to the nature reserve of De Maten. In this nature reserve a lot of vulnerable plants and animals need the clean water in order to survive.
Through the mash area a wooden footh path will be created so that everybody can walk from the Slagmolen to the city of Genk with dry feet.
