Saxony-Anhalt has 33 reservoirs at different levels. The lakes are a great water storage as well as popular recreation areas. The reservoirs serve mainly for the raw water supply and drinking water purification. More than a million people in central Germany benefit from the drinking water. In addition, the risk of flooding in the catchment areas, such as Bode and Helme, is reduced. The reservoir operation Saxony-Anhalt offers guided inside tours of Wendefurth.
