Lake Velence Water Level Reaches Record Low
While the water level of Lake Velence had already reached a record low of 61 cm on August 2, according to the data available on the website of the Ministry of Water Affairs, the water level of the lake dropped to an even lower low of 58 cm yesterday.
The previous lowest water level before the beginning of August was at the end of October 1949, when it was measured at 63 cm.
Despite the low water level, the water quality on most beaches is adequate, so the lake is suitable for swimming.
However, the Fejér County Government Office introduced a bathing ban on the beach on Pisztárng út in Gárdony (50 km southeast of Budapest) due to contamination.
