Little Testwood Lake
The body of water in this photo is Little Testwood Lake, a flooded disused gravel pit that is now used by Southern Water as a reservoir. It is also managed as a nature reserve by Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust. The gravel path in the foreground leads on a circular route around the lake. A Southern Water Technical Performance report on their website says: "Water is abstracted from the River Test and piped to Little Testwood Lake 800 metres away. In the past water was pumped from the River Test straight to our works for treatment. Little Testwood Lake can store up to 270 million litres of water. This provides security of supply to meet peak demand for water and secure high quality water by providing protection against possible river pollution. Water from the lake is pumped to the supply works for treatment before being distributed to our customers."
