Bei der Mineralwasserquellen GmbH rechnet man mit der Offenlage der Genehmigung bis zum Frühjahr

Von Franz-J. Filipp Hüfingen. Die Sensibilität zum Aufspüren von Wasseradern und Erdstrahlen scheint Wünschelrutengängern in die Wiege gelegt zu sein. Und: schlägt eine Rute aus, sprudelt in neun von zehn Fällen meist auch Wasser aus dem Bohrloch.

Hans Schröter entdeckt die Vorkommen

Einer von ihnen ist der Radiästhet Hans Schröter aus Rosbach (Taunus). Vor sechs Jahren ließ er mit seinem Mutungsergebnis in Hüfingen die Hoffnung auf Thermalwasser in der Region aufkommen (wir berichteten exklusiv).

Zwei Jahre liefen die Probebohrungen im Gewann Auf Hohen bis zum März vergangenen Jahres, nun stehen die Genehmigungen nach den Auswertungen beider Quellfassungen vor dem Abschluss, wie Günter Hub als Gesellschafter der Mineralwasserquellen GmbH und Co. KG gestern im Gespräch mit unserer Zeitung erklärte.

Die zeitliche Umsetzung habe damit für die Investoren eine neue, konkrete Dimension erreicht. Denn angeklopft haben sie bereits schon, Interessenten, die den Hüfinger Quell auf Flaschen ziehen und dann vermarkten wollen. Hub kann sich durchaus vorstellen, dass auch Unternehmen aus dem europäischen Ausland mit Interesse die Sache nun im Auge behalten werden. Und: Es seien gemessen an den Umsatzmargen Global Player. Die Adresse eines Lebensmitteldiscounters, der nur einen Steinwurf entfernt ein großes Zentrallager in Hüfingen plane oder dessen Mitbewerber seien ebesowenig darunter zu finden, wie Firmen aus der Region.

Fest stehe jedoch die Vermarktung als Mineralwasser oder zur Herstellung von Mischgetränken. Vertraglich sei mit der zur Abwicklung beauftragten Kanzlei mit rund 50 Fachanwälten Stillschweigen vereinbart worden.

200 Arbeitsplätze

Gestern habe man mit der Villinger Genehmigungsbehörde einen gangbaren Weg ausgehandelt. Dabei konnte man sich auch hinsichtlich der Fördermengen auf einen Kompromiss verständigen.

Die Offenlage vor der endgültigen Genehmigung sei damit bald möglich, vielleicht schon in den nächsten acht Wochen.

Damit ist er Weg geebnet, mit Investoren konkret zu verhandeln. Hub sieht das geplante interkommunale Gewerbegebiet als Standortvorteil für eine Abfüllanlage vor Ort. Auch die Region Hüfingen werde von einer Ansiedlung durch bis zu 200 Arbeitsplätze und Gewerbsteuern profitieren.

Gefunden hat die Quelle der frühere Mitarbeiter der GTZ (Deutsche Gesellschaft für technische Zusammenarbeit) in Eschborn, Hans Schröter. Er war viele Jahre in der Grundwassererschließung in Entwicklungsländern wie Sri Lanka, Ägypten (Sinai), Philippinen, Jemen, Kenia, Kapverdische Inseln, Namibia oder Israel und Palästina tätig gewesen und hatte dabei über 1000 Brunnenstandorte gefunden.

Blitzschlag trifft den Wünschelrutengänger

Ein Blitzschlag mitten in der Wüste in Namibia – nur durch Glück überlebte der heute 70-Jährige die Naturgewalten. Doch sie setzten den Auslandsarbeiten ein Ende.

Reha-Therapien führten den Wassersucher und seine Frau Luise später schließlich auf die Baar. Dort kribbelte es bald schon wieder in den Händen und der Ingenieur wertete hydrogeologische und topographische Karten aus und die Idee, dort Wasser zu finden ließ ihn fortan nicht mehr los. Seine Wünschelrute bestätigte schließlich die Vermutungen.

Unmittelbar an der B 27 wurde Schröter fündig, im Sommer 2007 nahm eine Firma aus den neuen Bundesländern die Bohrungen auf, die bis zum Abschluss rund eine Million Euro erfordert haben.

In 50 Metern Tiefe stieß man in den Keuperschichten auf das erste Vorkommen, in 130 Metern im Muschelkalk auf ein weiteres Vorkommen, das mit beachtlichen 45 Litern pro Sekunde überaus ergiebig ist (Bad Dürrheim sechs Liter pro Sekunde).

Die für eine wasserrechtliche Genehmigung erforderlichen Probebohrungen erforderten jedoch ein weiteres Probejahr. Auslöser waren für das Regierungspräsidium Freiburg noch Fragen hinsichtlich der Untersuchungsbefunde in Zusammenhang mit der Mineral- und Tafelwasser-Verordnung sowie einer konstanten Förderung, die Schwankungen von höchsten 20 Prozent aufweisen darf. Eine Entnahmemenge von 40 Sekundenlitern wurde von der Freiburger Behörde dagegen als sehr hoch betrachtet und im Bad Dürrheimer Gremium hatte sich CDU-Stadtrat Hans Schwärzer schon besorgt um Auswirkungen auf den örtlichen Grundwasserspiegel erkundigt.

Dort wurden im November 2010 Probebohrungen von der Kur und Bäder GmbH und dem dortigen Abfüllunternehmen Bad Dürrheimer Mineralbrunnen aufgenommen. In 170 Metern Tiefe, so hofft man, soll in der Nähe der Hirschhalde Mineralwasser zusätzlich zu den bestehenden acht Quellen im Bereich Wittmannstal, Realschule und Lourdeskapelle erschlossen werden. Erste Hinweise sind vielversprechend, Ergebnisse stehen noch aus – in Hüfingen liegen sie auf dem Tisch.

Ausländische Unternehmen wollen Tiefbrunnen vermarkten

Hüfingen. Nach Erteilung der wasserrechtlichen Genehmigung ist es bereits seit längerer Zeit sehr ruhig um die Hüfinger Mineralwasser GmbH & Co. KG geworden. Es sei sicherlich angebracht, darüber zu informieren, dass das in Angriff genommene Projekt nicht zu den Akten gelegt wurde sondern intensiv verfolgt werde, erklärte Rechtsanwalt Heinz-Günter Hub dem Hüfinger Gemeinderat in nichtöffentlicher Sitzung.

Im Laufe des letzten Jahres sei es gelungen, konkrete Kontakte zu potenziellen Investoren herzustellen, die Interesse daran haben, das als sehr gut beurteilte Wasser des Hüfinger Tiefbrunnens auf Hohen zu vermarkten. Bei den potenziellen Investoren handele es sich überwiegend um ausländische Unternehmen, die den deutschen Getränkemarkt erschließen wollen und auch bestehende Vertriebskanäle ins Ausland nutzen können und wollen.

“Nach dem bisherigen Verlauf der Gespräche sind wir zuversichtlich, der Stadt noch dieses Jahr konkrete Pläne des Investors vorstellen zu können”, so die Vertreter der Hüfinger Mineralwasserquellen. Die dann später vorzunehmenden Investitionen in den Betrieb seien beachtlich.

Damit einhergehend sollen auch eine Vielzahl neuer Arbeitsplätze geschaffen werden. “Wir würden uns freuen und werden alles in unseren Möglichkeiten stehende dazu beitragen, dass dieses Projekt zu einem erfolgreichen Ende gebracht wird”, unterstreicht Bürgermeister Anton Knapp auch die Bemühungen städtischerseits.

Es sei das Ziel der Hüfinger Mineralwasserquellen GmbH & Co. KG und deren Initiatoren gemeinsam mit der Stadt das Projekt erfolgreich zu Ende zu führen und über die Vermarktung des Hüfinger Wassers auch die Stadt Hüfingen am wirtschaftlichen Erfolg partizipieren zu lassen, waren sich die Vertreter der Hüfinger Mineralwasser GmbH & Co.KG, Bürgermeister und Gemeinderat einig.

 

In recent years, Hans Schröter has been commissioned several times to search for water for foundations and NGOs such as Menschen für Menschen or Welthungerhilfe. He had already developed numerous successful wells. At the same time, he is always on the lookout for talented young divers to promote their training.

His vision for the future is to establish a Water for Life Foundation with the exact aim of – supporting drinking water projects to give people, especially in developing countries, access to drinking water and at the same time to promote the training of water finders.

Foundation objectives in detail:

  • Research, promotion, and publication of radiesthesia
  • Groundwater development using the combined work technique radiesthesia and geophysics in relation to drinking water development, possibly also irrigation, in developing countries
  • Promotion of near-surface geothermal energy, as well as other explorations, via the combined work technique
  • Humanitarian, charitable aid

Radiesthesia is the ability to sense earth rays or water veins. Aids such as the dowsing rod or pendulum are used, which swing out as a reaction to the hypersensitivity to radiation fields. A rod, however, is not a magic wand, but shows the biological reaction of the dowser to a geophysical cause.

How the rod works must be interpreted correctly, with the dowser’s experience playing the greatest role. The rod reaction not only determines the exact location (up to 10cm) of the aquifer, but also its width, depth, direction of flow, expected productivity and water quality.

This ancient art of radiesthesia is of course highly controversial scientifically. However, the lack of scientific understanding cannot be the argument not to pursue this very successful approach to finding water. Because the success – at least that of Hans Schröter – speaks for itself. He can determine the location of an aquifer with almost 100% certainty.

For a rough selection of the location of water resources, however, theoretical knowledge of the hydrogeological conditions of an area is necessary. Forms of rock, surface water, topography and forms of vegetation can provide clues that can then be examined more closely in on-site inspections. The exact point measurement, up to 10cm, is finally done by the professional and experienced handling of the dowsing rod.

Using the unconventional working method radiesthesia and geophysics, numerous GTZ projects for the development of groundwater were carried out all over the world, which were unusually successful, extremely cost-effective and carried out with a comparatively minimal expenditure of time.

The major project carried out in Sri Lanka in the early 80s, or the publication of the success of the divining rod method, resulted in what would be called a shitstorm today. The classical science of geology, hydrology and geophysics still criticizes the method, which cannot be scientifically explained.

The scientific dilemma is understandable and the discussion of dowsing rod versus science is left out at this point. Suffice it to say that we cannot afford to do without modern technical knowledge. However, this knowledge can be noticeably improved through dowsing performance and tested and used as a possibly efficient and cost-saving alternative. An unbiased and rational approach to this border area contributes to solving the problem of drinking water scarcity.

The former employer Schröters also adopted a pragmatic view after the astonishing success of this method, which was implemented against much initial resistance, could no longer be dismissed out of hand.

In the early years of the project, the determination of the borehole was confirmed with the help of geological and geoelectrical methods (e.g. the Schlumberger method – the measurement of specific electrical resistances of the subsoil), but it was later dispensed with due to the almost 100% success rate (which is time-saving and cost-effective affected).

The use of the divining rod in the Sri Lanka project was initially rather accidental and was added for pragmatic reasons. The aim was not to check the methodology of this border area, but the success in the search for water. However, several comparative tests were carried out after this project, in which the two different methods of groundwater development – geophysics and radiesthesia – were used. The result was the same every time: conventional prospecting yielded a success rate of around 30%, with the dowsing method a much higher success rate of over 90%.

A German physicist and retired university professor, Hans-Dieter Betz, worked in the field of radiesthesia and examined dowsing. He also researched this area experimentally for ten years on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Research, also in the extensive Munich research projects (the so-called double-blind barn experiment) with the question – Are there human reactions that can be felt by the body, which mainly depend on the location and not through normal- sensory sensory channels can be explained? He takes the view that his experiments have shown that there is a non-random effect.

Hans Schröter, with his dowsing skills, was one of the few to deliver a highly significant result and was rated as the most successful dowser in a selected group of around 50 test subjects.

However, this experiment also shows that water is not the primary stimulus, i.e. the actual cause of the dowsing reaction, but rather the secondary phenomena that either occur parallel to the presence of water or can be caused by water, e.g. underground fault zones.

 

 

 

Christopher Bird, 68, a Best-Selling Author

About the Archive

Occasionally the digitization process introduces transcription errors or other problems; we are continuing to work to improve these archived versions.

Christopher Bird, a writer whose books “The Secret Life of Plants” and “The Divining Hand: The 500-Year-Old Mystery of Dowsing” drew good-natured skepticism and some praise from critics, died on Thursday in a Blairsville, Ga., hospital. He was 68 and lived in Blairsville.

The cause was a stroke he suffered at home, said his wife, Shabari-Lynda.

Mr. Bird, whose family said he served with the Central Intelligence Agency in the 1950’s, was best known for “The Secret Life of Plants: A Fascinating Account of the Physical, Emotional and Spiritual Relations Between Plants and Men” (1973), which he wrote in collaboration with Peter Tompkins.

In the book, the authors said, among many other things, that experiments had shown that plants instantly registered the reactions of people they cared about who were thousands of miles away. “The Secret Life of Plants” became a best seller and was translated into many foreign languages.

Elsa First, a psychoanalyst, wrote in reviewing that work that the two authors had “concocted a popular-science pastiche of New Occult hopes and brought them out into the marketplace, glibly tailored to bid for middle-class respectability.”

 

“Amateur psychic research has always looked at least slightly dotty,” she added, “Tompkins and Bird are sublimely oblivious of this fact, and as a result have turned out the funniest unintentionally funny book of the year.”

Another reviewer, Doris Grumbach, wrote of Mr. Bird’s 1979 book about dowsing — locating water by the movements of a forked stick or similar implement — that his “encyclopedic work will interest many, amuse some and convince others that dowsing works, for whatever reason.”

 

Mr. Bird was born in Boston, graduated in 1951 from Harvard College and later did graduate work in Eastern European studies and Polynesian anthropology.

He also served in the Army in Vietnam and worked as a journalist and for the Rand Corporation in addition to writing several books and hundreds of articles.

His first marriage ended in divorce, and his second wife died. He married his third wife, Shabari-Lynda Boland, in 1991.

 

In addition to his wife, he is survived by four daughters, Kristina Bird, of Truro, Mass.; Lehua Julie Bird-Farraiz, of La Sabana, Venezuela; Doina Bird-Rosique of Barcelona, Spain, and Zvia Bird of Atlanta; three stepsons, Tim Bunge of Silver Spring, Md., and Gabriel and Jeremiah Cymerman of Blairsville; a stepdaughter, Hope Cymerman of Blairsville; four grandchildren, and two brothers, David, of Cambridge, Mass., and Charles Sumner Bird 3d, of Aiken, S.C.

Globe Staff / November 6, 2007

Page 2 of 2 —After graduating from Harvard, Mr. Bird worked for the government as a specialist in eastern European affairs. He married Jeanne Meyer 54 years ago.

Along with his twin, Mr. Bird also worked for a time with the Central Intelligence Agency. Mr. Bird was posted in Germany and Turkey, where he trained agents while gathering intelligence from the Soviet Union during the Cold War.

Upon returning to Boston in the early 1960s, he founded Bison Associates, a consulting company that specialized in politics, economics, and urban social issues. Later, he merged his firm, creating King-Bison with Melvin King, who later served as a state representative and twice ran unsuccessfully for mayor. The firm helped rehabilitate affordable housing in Roxbury and the South End.

As a skilled political consultant, Mr. Bird “played a pivotal role” in helping Endicott Peabody become governor when he unseated John Volpe in the 1962 election, Robert Peabody said.

“He and my father were very close,” Peabody said. “I know my father drew on his counsel not just in the areas where he was assigned to work, but in all areas – political and spiritual. David was a very deep thinker.”

Deep, but hardly staid, recalled Peabody and Mr. Bird’s daughter.

“He spoke fluent Russian and led a Polish dance troupe. And he played the guitar with vigor,” Peabody said, drawing on a repertoire that ran from “Russian drinking songs to sea chanties.”

Said his daughter: “In thinking about him now, one thing rings most true. For a man of his upbringing, opportunity, and intellect, he did not possess an ounce of pretension. I will miss his humanity, perhaps most of all.”

During the 1960s, Mr. Bird helped develop the Center for Choice, a forum for gathering the views of the public and making them known to candidates and elected officials. Through the center he co-created the mayormobile during the mayoral campaign in 1967.

“He certainly was a scholar of the public sector,” Sears said. “David was a very exciting political personality.”

Mr. Bird was also involved with organizations that worked on everything from the impact of population growth on Massachusetts to facilitating the exchange of healthcare knowledge and practitioners between the United States and the Soviet Union.

He had served as a director of Bird & Sons, the family business in East Walpole; as board chairman for The Conway School of Landscape Design in Conway; and as president of the Boston Center for International Visitors.

“He was very much a visionary,” his daughter said. “I don’t know if ideas found him or he found ideas.”

In addition to his wife and daughter, Mr. Bird leaves two sons, Marten of Westport and Matthew of Brighton; and a brother, Charles Sumner Bird III of Manchester-by-the-Sea.

A memorial service will be announced.

In short, never believe one word the cabal says, unless….it is officially denied, now it is officially denied, thus, Chris and his twin brother were absolutely working for the OSS, a precursor of the CIA,

 

Callahan too by the way.

It is a long story and most children will not understand, so I better not get started on it, the poor souls , they would just not understand.

Should we throw everything overboard, hell no, it is good stuff, it just means there is always more that does not meet the eye.

 

 

Phil: Well, I never talked much about World War II until I would get the Medal of Honor. I was an unoffcial spy. I sent data back to the OSS before it was the CIA and the German’s occupied France. (points to a picture) In fact, that’s one of these airplanes. A B-26.

Joe: Do you do your own artwork?

Phil: Oh yeah, this is mine.

 

 

Yes holes in the stories, big holes, still does not rule out there is a lot of truth in it , but plain truth we, the sheeple, never get.

You can take that to the masonic bank.
