The shore of Stropsky Lake will have to be returned to its original state

The Department of Nature Protection ordered the private owners of three land plots on the shore of Lake Bolshie Slings to remove the piers they built without permission and return the coastline to its original state.

Earlier, the State Environment Service (Valsts vides dienests) and the Augšdaugava County Construction Board noted the peculiar constructions and the ongoing uncoordinated construction on the shores of the Great Slings Lake. VVD started administrative processes on the fact of the appearance of artificial embankments in the waters of Lake Bolshie Slings, and the administration of the regional self-government set deadlines for giving explanations and settling documents for ongoing construction work (a wide road was laid through two sections, along a forest belt, for which not a single agreement was received ).

Now the Latgale Regional Administration of Nature Protection Administration (Dabas aizsardzības pārvalde) has also said its word. They stated that Lake Bolshie Slings was registered as a protected freshwater biotope. When examining three land plots on the shore of this lake (“Mežakrasti 1”, “Mežakrasti 3” and “Arianna”), it was found that as a result of unauthorized actions, the profile of the lake bottom was changed, and dams were created on its coastline, which “is unfavorable affected the structure and function of the lake’s protected habitat.”

Specialists also emphasize that these land plots and the coastline along them are located in such a way that the immutability of these shores and the bottom is especially important for the natural course of all biological processes in the reservoir, including fish spawning and feeding of waterfowl. The increase in the length of the coastline and the construction of dams, in turn, threaten the safety and natural development of the Strop Lake biotope.

In this regard, the Nature Protection Administration orders the owners of three land plots to carry out rehabilitation measures in order to restore the initial state of the lake shoreline.
