Kambreško – A Renovated Water Reservoir

The Municipality of Kanal carried out the renovation of a water reservoir (trough) from World War I located in the village of Kambreško. Part of the works were funded by the Interreg V-A Italy‒Slovenia WALKofPEACE project. The works were carried out in collaboration with the Municipality of Nova Gorica, the official partner in the aforementioned programme led by the Soča Valley Development Centre in collaboration with the Walk of Peace Foundation.

The water reservoir was primarily used for the needs of the army on the Isonzo Front, and was later on used to supply water to livestock. Both the inside and outside of the reservoir were renovated to prevent it from ruin. Nowadays, the reservoir nicely complements the Walk of Peace trail that runs along the Kanalski Kolovrat ridge, as a welcoming source of refreshing water to numerous hikers and bikers that pass it on their way. The renovation works were carried out following guidelines from the Nova Gorica Regional Office of the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Heritage.
