Stories: THE SAD LAKE: SadLake-photoLukaDakskobler-010

The Ponikve and Kevdrovce team carry wooden planks to temporarily fix the broken dam in front of Velika Ponikva, and thus make rescue easier. In the past, small dams were built between Strzen stream and some sinkholes to prevent water from draining into sinkholes too fast. Slowing the water down gives fishermen more time to rescue the stranded fish. Dams broke over the years, but legislation now prevents fishermen to permanently fix them.
