Artificial Lakes

An artificial lake is an area filled with water, that is surrounded by land, apart from any river or another outlet that serves to feed or drain the lake. Lakes lie on land and are not part of the ocean, and therefore are distinct from lagoons, and are also larger and deeper than ponds, though there are no official or scientific definitions. Lakes can be contrasted with rivers or streams, which are usually flowing.

Natural lakes are generally found in mountainous areas, rift zones, and areas with ongoing glaciation. Artificial lakes are constructed mainly for aesthetic and recreational purposes and are mostly a part of soft, hard landscaping and other beautification works.
