The reservoir bottom, almost horizontal, consists of the upper annular slab strengthened by racially positioned webs which are at the other end joined by a very perforated slab in the shape of a multi-pointed star. The reservoir bottom slab webs are joined via the inner support ring with the radial webs on the column circumference.

The column is formed on the circular slab of dia 17 m.

§ The reservoir bottom bearing slab and its outside circumference wall are both made of prestressed concrete. The prestressing of the bottom slab was done with radial cables, and the circumference wall by cables crossed at 45o angle. The column and its foundation as well as the roofing elements for the platform above the reservoir were performed in reinforced concrete.
