Kur Rumbas upīte Daugavā krītot…#3

Šī slēpņu sērija veltīta Lielvārdes novada dižupei Rumbiņai, kuras vārds, pateicoties A.Pumpura darbam, uz mūžiem ierakstīts nacionālajā eposā līdzās Daugavai, Burtnieka ezeram un Staburagam.

Meliorācija

Ja lejpus dzelzceļa caurtekas Rumbiņa vēl vietām saglabājusi dabīgo gultni, tad augšup pa straumi tā pārvērsta meliorācijas grāvjos. Tas bija neizbēgams mazo upīšu liktenis 60. gados kad masveidā notika kolhoza zemju nosusināšana – Rumbiņu tas ķēra 1967. gadā. Šeit, pie bijušās Virsaišu fermas, upītes tecējums pēdējo reizi (vai pirmo – kā skaita) saglabājis dabīga tecējuma raksturu.

Where Rumba River, in Daugava falling…#3

This series of caches is dedicated to great river Rumbiņa of Lielvārde parish. Thanks to poet Andrejs Pumpurs, its name is made immortal in Latvian national epos “Lāčplēsis” (“Bearslayer”)

Drainage works.

During 1960.-ties most of small rivers was subject of drainage, to make surrounding areas more fertile and not so spectacular. Rumbiņa had the same fate in 1967. From this point downstream, it retains more or less natural flow. Upstream it is turned in drainage ditches.
