Most - Lake, Fish, algae bloom
We are accommodated in a beautiful retro hotel Domina near the Municipal Museum in Most and the city's main boulevard.
The view from the twelfth floor is breathtaking. Later we found out that the building of a former high-school dormitory operates also as social flats for unemployed citizens of Most.
On Tuesday afternoon we made an excursion to the new lake near Most with Mr. Ivo Přikryl. The old town of Brux/Most was swallowed by the lignite quarry Ležáky during the '70s and '80s. It disappeared on the slope of the Hněvín Hill. After all coal had been dug out, the mining company (the state-owned PKU) thought it the cheapest and most human to transform the 50-meter-deep pit into a beautiful lake.
The new lake called Most is being flooded from Ohře and it has already reached the desired water level. Mr. Přikryl presented and discussed with us results of the continuous hydro-biological measurement of the concentration of zoo-plankton and benthos since the flooding of the residual lignite mine. Changes in the quantity and quality of water, flowing from different sources, and the development of stratification in the lake water both affect the composition of zoo-plankton and benthos. Original sources of zoo-plankton inoculum, which are the reservoirs in the Lake Most own catchment area, are monitored too. Another important source that will significantly affect the formation of the newly formed lake, is the river Ohře (Eger), which contributes with the greatest volume of water. At the same time, the hydro-chemical water quality parameters and their influence on the formation of zoo-plankton and benthos communities are monitored.
Two employees of the PKU explained the current situation, how the landscape surrounding the lake and next future outlooks when the lake will be handed over its new owner, the City of Most, and used for sport and recreation.
We asked the head of the group of hydro-biologists from the Academy of Science's subdivision in České Budějovice to take us for a short ride on their exploration boat. They did.
