East of the lake lies the village Mouries and south the city of Doirani. The north-to-south length is 8,9 km and the east-to-west length is 7,1 km. Many battles took place in World War I on the Greek side, between the allies and the Bulgarians. Today, after a period of overuse for agricultural purposes, the lake is healthy and sustained.
