Střekov Sluice

This water work is situated on Labe (Elbe) river and was built within 1924 - 1936, nearby Střekov Castle, according to plans of Frantisek Vahal. The work would serve to the fact that water energy for production of electric stream would be used in better way. At that time period, this sluice belonged to most modern constructions in former Czechoslovakia. Till now, it is fully in function, and the building is declared as technical monument.

A weir, 111 metres long, is to be placed here. It is divided, by means of three pillars, into four fields, 24 metres long. The pillars are 5 metres long, and boarded with granite freestones in its lower part. The weir inflates water level of the river in distance of 19,8 kms. Maximal height difference between upper and lower water level is 9,75 m.

The sluice is equipped with passage for fish, and serves as foot-bridge for foot passengers. However, fish-passage showed to be as out of order, so the sluice happened to be as final station for moving fish, as for salmons, for instance.
