The Lingesetalsperre was built between 1897 and 1899 and is one of the oldest reservoirs owned by the Wupperverband. It is a small, manageable lake that originally served to regulate the river and supply service water. Today it is primarily used for leisure activities, flood protection and low water elevation. The dammed river is the Lingese, a tributary of the Wipper. The Lingese is the border river between Kierspe in the Sauerland and Marienheide in the Oberberg district.
