Sutlansko lake
Summary: 
The Sutlansko Lake area is a wetland with a high biological diversity. The Vonarje reservoir was initially built for drinking water supply and flood protection. The reservoir was drained due to difficulties encountered to manage its water quality. Now it operates as a dry retention basin for flood protection. At the bottom of the reservoir, wetland ecosystems developed. For this reason, the area of the reservoir on the Slovene side has been declared as a Natura 2000 site.
