Several questions regarding the lake of the Haute-Sûre

What has been the evolution of the lake's water levels in recent years? What is the condition of the dam wall? The deputy of the DP André Bauler addressed several questions to the competent ministers.

« Depuis plus de 50 ans, le lac de la Haute-Sûre est le plus grand réservoir d’eau potable au Luxembourg et est également un important producteur d’électricité. Durant les saisons printanière et estivale, il est visité par des milliers de touristes et sportifs venant de tous les coins du pays et de l’étranger.

Il y a juste trente ans, le lac a été vidé pour réaliser des travaux d’assainissement notables. A remarquer que l’hiver 2020/2021 a connu de fortes précipitations si bien que le niveau du lac a pu augmenter. En revanche, des hivers antérieurs ont été moins prolifiques en eaux de pluie de sorte que la cote peut bien varier bon an mal an.

Voilà pourquoi j’aimerais poser les questions suivantes à Monsieur le Ministre de la Mobilité et des Travaux publics et à Madame la Ministre de l’Environnement, du Climat et du Développement durable :

  • Monsieur le Ministre peut-il retracer l’évolution des cotes du lac depuis l’an 2018 ?
  • Quels constats le ministère a-t-il pu faire lors des contrôles concernant la sécurité et la stabilité du mur du barrage ? Serait-il indispensable d’effectuer des travaux de réparation et/ou d’entretien durant les années à venir ?
  • Quels travaux ont été réalisés depuis 2018 afin d’améliorer les infrastructures facilitant l’accès aux bords du lac par les usagers les plus divers ? »

Operations on intersex children – will they also be banned in Luxembourg?

Operations on intersex children are not uncommon. Intersexuality is often seen as a medical problem that needs to be addressed. Regardless of whether these children are healthy, they are being refused a choice that they should have been able to make a later date. In Germany, a law is currently being discussed prohibiting this practice and aiming to strengthen intersex children in their self-determination. Such a law is planned for Luxembourg. What is the latest stand on this law and when should this law be submitted? Our deputies Carole Hartmann and Max Hahn have inquired with the respective ministries.
