This dataset of lake water bodies was produced for the 2nd cycle river basin plans (2015 - 2021). Lake water features, originally created to comply with Article 2(5) of the Water Framework Directive for the 1st cycle river basin plans (2009 - 2015) were updated to produce this new dataset. The data has been topologically corrected to remove gaps and overlaps with interbasins and river water bodies that were produced for the Water Framework Directive.
