The Polluted Lake

Here at Søllerød Lake was a laundry from the years 1850 to 1974.
The laundry spent many chemicals which were discharged into the lake.
Also, a treatment plant contributed to the lake’s pollution until the municipality closed the outdated plant in 2005.
Søllerød Municipality removed the nutrient-rich water from the lake for 18 years.
The lake was green due to heavy pollution.
Now you can enjoy a swim in the lake if it is warm enough I might add.

If you take a walk on the 42 kilometer long Rudersdalruten you will pass Søllerød Lake on your way.

Happy walk and enjoy your packed lunch ❤
