The ruins of Čabraď Castle are located in the middle of nature, undisturbed by a modern civilization, in the heart of a natural reservation in the cadastral area of Čabradský Vrbovok in Krupinský district in the Middle Slovakia. The beginnings of the castle are not known precisely because of insufficient and unclear sources, but it can be assumed that it originated in the 13th century, but more likely during the 14th century. The end of the castle can be considered year 1812 when its owner František Kohári ordered to burn it. The non-profit Rondel civic association is currently working on ruins, which is responsible for its preservation. Castle ruins are freely accessible all year round. http://www.rondel.sk/hrad/ako-sa-dostat-na-hrad/

The Turček waterworks or water reservoir began to be built in 1992. Its main task is the accumulation and supply of raw water for the Turček water treatment plant, from where it supplies drinking water to the districts of Žiar nad Hronom, Handlová and Prievidza. Its secondary mission is to protect the upper reaches of the Turks from floods, to ensure its ecologically stable flow throughout the year, and to generate electricity in small hydroelectric power stations wherever the work creates slopes and flows with the possibility of their construction. The reservoir is located at the confluence of the Turiec and Ružový potok brooks above the village of Turček. The total catchment area is 29.5 km2. The average amount of water supplied to the water treatment plant is 15.8 mil. m3. The width of the valley is approximately 120 m and the altitude in the dam is 719 m. n. m. The total tank volume is 10.6 mil. m3, while its stock volume is 9.9 mil. m3. (the tank is filled twice a year) and the fixed volume is 0.3 mil. m3 of water. In the area of the dam are built objects ensuring the functionality of the water tank. […]
The incentive for the construction of the water structure Môťová was based on the post-war growth requirements of industrial companies in Zvolen. They required an urgent solution to water provision. The reservoir was created by damming the Slatina stream with a natural homogeneous dam. The construction of the waterworks did not require any resettlement of the population, liquidation of residential houses or other constructions. The flooded area consisted mainly of meadows and pastures. VS It was built on the river Slatina in the years 1953 – 1957. The filling of the reservoir was started in 1957. After reaching the maximum level, the function of the earth dam was performed. The Môťová reservoir serves for balancing the minimum flow rates on the Slatina River, it provides service water for the timber industry and for the Zvolen heating plant. Its secondary purpose is to produce electricity. As the reservoir is in the immediate vicinity of Zvolen, it is also used for recreation, sport fishing and water sports. The water work is administered by the Slovak State Water Management Company.

Problems with the lack of drinking water in the Ipľa region began to be felt in 1977. The solution was the construction of the Málinec waterworks, which they started to implement on 1 April 1986. The tank was put into operation in 1994 and now the cities of Fiľakovo are supplied with drinking water. Lučenec and Veľký Krtíš. In the flooded area completely disappeared settlement Hamor, but also the surrounding settlements Hrozinovo, Chmelná, Šťavica. The work itself consists of its own water reservoir on the upper Ipľa river and water treatment plant. The dam height is 53 meters and the total reservoir volume is over 26 million cubic meters. It is interesting that the river Ipeľ has all 12 tributaries in the Málinca cadastre from the right bank. The tributaries of Chocholná and Smolná are so extensive that they are almost equivalent to the Ipeľ River. It was the resource yield that was decisive in the selection of the building for the drinking water supply in Málinec.
