The farm "Talschmiede" used to be located where today the reservoir is located in Kirchdorf. When in the years 1901/1902 the project Staumauer on the Luigam was implemented, this farm had to give way. A 10-meter-high wall was erected for power generation and laid with pressure pipes of 354 meters. Since 1954, the power plant has been maintained and operated by TIWAG.
