The Pleckenbrinksee is a mountain sinking water created in autumn 2007 in Dortmund-Wickede. The ground- and rainwater-fed lake temporarily covers an area of more than 5.6 ha and is up to 1.5 m deep. It originated in a mining sink area created around 1930 on an agricultural area after defects at the drainage and / or pumping facility.
The lake adjacent to the nature reserve Wickeder Ostholz was temporarily protected by the city of Dortmund. In 2011, it was temporarily drained, as under the waters of a natural gas pipeline of the natural gas transport company Open Grid Europe runs, and this had to be secured.
Since 2011, the lake continues as a protected landscape component and is therefore also under nature conservation.Source:

Somewhat muddy shallow lake that formed by rain and goundwater in 2007 within an already environmentally protected zone, sinking since the 1930s due to underground mining collapses.
