Leipziger Neuseenland lake district, mine surveying

The Leipziger Neuseenland lake district belongs to the greater central German lake district (Mitteldeutsches Seenland) and is a region that, in part, is still being developed. Through recultivation and renaturation of former lignite extraction sites and their facilities, the disused surface mine pits have and are being converted into lakes which will be completely filled over the course of the next years and decades.
