A Population of 10,400 people, including the commercial and industrial areas as well as tourism, live in the catchment area of the completed Leibis Dam.

To ensure that the quality of the water meets the requirements of drinking water supply and can be sustainably improved downstream of the dam, the Lichte Wastewater Treatment  Plant was built. To exclude potential contamination accidents. The treated wastewater is bypassed around the Leibis Dam via an outlet hydraulic main and then discharged into the river Lichte.

For this reason an emergency collection basin was built which can hold more than 3,000 m³ of water. Via a pumping station, this water can then be piped back to the wastewater treatment plant for purification. The plant was put into service in 2008.
