The Dam’s construction process was interrupted by the WWII outbreak, and the pre-war project was completed in 1956-1960. The artificial lake was created with the surface area 2 km2 surrounded by steep slopes of Grodzisko (556 m), Berdo (577) and Koziniec (524 m). The Myczkowieckie Lake is described as a paradise for fishing and kayaking. During the construction the builders uncovered many well-preserved remains of medieval settlements, in 2017 the archeological researches have started.
