Llosa del Cavall reservoir
The project of the Llosa del Cavall reservoir was approved in 1989 with the need to increase the water resources according to the (Pla Hidrològic) hydrologic plan for Catalonia’s internal water basins.
The supplying basin to the reservoir includes the whole top part of the Cardener river, has an area of 200 km² and an average altitude of 1,400 metres with an average annual contribution of 76 hm³.
This resulted in the building of the present road which connects Solsona and Sant Llorenç de Morunys passing the reservoir. It is an interesting place to practice adventure sports, especially kayaking.
