The Ternscher lake is a 15-acre lake in the peasantry Ternsche, city Selm (circle Unna, North Rhine-Westphalia). He is an artificial lake, which was created in 1934/35 in the clay extraction for the expansion of the nearby Dortmund-Ems channel, that inadvertently a groundwater-bearing layer was pierced, so that the pit filled with groundwater.The lake has a maximum length of approx. 600 m and a maximum width of approx. 380 m. It is fed by several sources in the lake. Its water quality is controlled and meets the highest criteria. On its south shore there is a beach and a campsite; The private properties on the north shore are partly built with weekend cottages, partly with villas. The outcrop of the Ternscher lake forms the Ternsche as inflow of the Stever, which flows into the lip.In 1938, among other mammoth tusks, rhinoceros skulls and reindeer bones were found during excavations.
