THE ORIGINS OF EAU D'HEURE LAKES
The name of the Eau d’Heure Lakes goes back to last century.
The Eau d’Heure is a small stream rising in the Fagnes, a region in the south of Belgium, and flowing into the Sambre at Marchienne-au-Pont.
During the 1970s the Walloon Region decided to build a hydroelectric power station there with artificial reservoirs.And thus the Eau d’Heure Lakes were born.
