Skalka 

Skalka The Skalka Waterworks are an integral part of the Skalka – Jesenice water management system. The main objective of the Skalka Waterworks is to compensate for releases in the Ohře River for heat power plants and industrial plants up to the Kadaň profile in co-operation with the Jesenice Waterworks in order to secure minimum flow rates in the Karlovy Vary and Kadaň profiles, to secure the minimum flow rate in the Cheb water-level recorder profile, as well as to partially protect the area below the dam against floods and to eliminate the consequences of accidents reducing the water quality in the Ohře.

Additional objectives include power production in the small Skalka water power plant – i.e. a micro source utilising the energy of the water flowing through the dam profile; as well as securing water for recreation and water sports.
