According to an announcement on the Lenk municipality website, the water level of the glacial lake on the Plaine Morte has dropped through the sub-glacial cave network. The outflow from the glacier tongue went via Trübbach and Simme without reaching alarming levels.
According to Lenk municipality, the lake should now be empty and, based on experience, should not fill up again this year.
The event will now be assessed by the expert committee in order to gain knowledge for subsequent years.
