The Lieser valley network with its tributaries and the outlets of the carbon dioxide-containing mineral water springs, called “Drees” here in the Volcanic Eifel, are very clearly oriented towards two fault directions along which the rock deposits have become more fractured and have even moved against each other. It is particularly easy for water to flow along these weak zones in the rock.
