The closing event of the project "Construction of Storm Water Reservoir at the catchment area of Baranya Canal" - a project of the Consortium of two governmental bodies: General Directorate of Water Management and the South-Transdanubian Water Management Directorate - was held yesterday in Magyarszék and Magyarhertelend. The largest reservoir in terms of water capacity in County Baranya was named ‘Lake Barátúri’.

The program series of the day began at the Community Centre of Magyarszék in the morning and continued with the handover of Lake Barátúri. The celebration proceeded at the square in front of the Community Centre in Magyarhertelend, the other municipality concerned in the completion of the investment.

Finally, a presentation and slideshow on the works and implementation of the storm water reservoir was made by Mr Károly Polgár, head of the Watershed Control and Irrigation Department of the South-Transdanubian Water Management Directorate.

Lake Barátúri was handed over to the consortium by Tamás Kovács, the executive director of Szabadics Zrt., the contractor the investment was carried out by.

The handover of the lake and the lake’s name giving ceremony were held on the same day.

A tender was launched by the Municipality of County Baranya and the South-Transdanubian Water Management Directorate in order to find the best name for this artificial storm water reservoir.

The official name of the lake was announced by Mr. Csaba Nagy MP and Mr. László Márk director at the event and awards were granted to the winners of the tender.

As the lake was blessed and consecrated by priest Zsolt Rosner, the lake was officially handed over to the public with the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.

The official Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was attended by:

Mr Csaba Nagy, Member of Parliament, representative of County Baranya in the Hungarian National Assembly, chairman of the South-Transdanubian Regional Water Management Council; Dr. Zoltán Horváth, Representative of Government Office of County Baranya; Mr Zoltán Bencs, Registrar of Head of Department - General Directorate of Water Management; Mr László Márk, Director of the South-Transdanubian Water Management Directorate and Chairman of the Hungarian Hydrological Society (HHS) in County Baranya; Ms Katalin Szeledi, Mayor of Magyarhertelend; Mr Jenő Kárpáti, Mayor of Magyarszék and Mr Tamás Kovács, executive director of Szabadics Zrt.

The event was organized at Magyarhertelend, in front of the Community Center - in addition to the invited guests - with the participation of mayors and notaries of the surrounding settlements, representatives of national self-governments, minority self-governments, non-governmental organizations and the public.

Welcome speeches were given by Dr. Zoltán Horváth, Representative of Government Office of County Baranya; Mr László Márk, Director of the South-Transdanubian Water Management Directorate and Chairman of the Hungarian Hydrological Society (HHS) in County Baranya; the implementation of the investment was co-ordinated by the project manager, Mr János Janotka engineer (Euroút Kft.); Ms Katalin Szeledi, Mayor of Magyarhertelend.

The investment was carried out from almost 2 billion HUF non-refundable EU grants in the framework of Széchenyi 2020 Environment and Energy Efficiency Operational Programme. Lake Barátúri storm water reservoir is the largest reservoir in terms of water capacity planned in County Baranya and in the region so it plays a significant role in water damage prevention and mitigation.

It ensures the retention of floods coming from the upper section of Baranya Canal and stream Kaszánya. The primary objective of constructing the 53.5-hectare reservoir with the capacity of 1,280,000 cubic meters is to reduce the risk of flooding in spring by retaining water and reducing the incoming water flow. The flood peak-reducing effect of the reservoir built at the border of Barátúr, Magyarszék and Magyarhertelend will be felt to Sásd. The storm water reservoir will effectively protect about four thousand people from flood damage.
