    Built in the years 1897 to 1899, the Lingesetalsperre is one of the oldest reservoirs owned by the Wupperverbandes. It is a small, manageable lake that was originally used for river regulation and service water supply. Today it serves primarily the leisure pleasure, the flood protection and the low water elevation. The dammed river is the Lingese, a tributary of the Wipper. The Lingese is border river between Kierspe in the Sauerland and Marienheide in the Oberbergischer Kreis.

    The Lingese dam dams the river Lingese near the town Marienheide in the southeast of North Rhine-Westphalia. Since 1899, the dam is already in operation as a service water dam. Today, the Lingese dam primarily serves recreational pleasure. It is visited annually by many thousands of people who seek and find relaxation in the beautiful landscape. In 2011, three swimming pools were set up by the Wupperverband on the Lingese dam: Badesstelle1: DLRG, bathing area 2: camping site, bathing area 3: Linge.
