Cottbus Baltic Sea is emerging

15 August 2019, Brandenburg, Cottbus: A small wooden ship stands symbolically at the edge of the former open-cast lignite mine Cottbus-Nord. In the background, the steaming cooling towers of the J'nschwalde lignite-fired power plant can be seen. In between lies the future Cottbus Baltic Sea. Flooding of the former Cottbus-Nord open-cast mine began in mid-April 2019. Due to the renewed drought this year, the flooding of the huge pit has already been suspended for several months. The artificial lake will later have a water surface of 19 square kilometres. Photo by: Patrick Pleul/picture-alliance/dpa/AP Images
