Sulzenausee | Dam eroded by GLOF

WI_at021_510.jpg

The proglacial lake of Sulzenauferner in a tributary of the upper Stubai Valley appeared in 2003. Partial drainage on 12 August 2017 devastated the power plant and water supply system of the nearby mountain hut. The outlet of the lake was permanently lowered through erosion.
