Members of the Sports and Fishing Club (SFC) "Niksic", with the help of the Society of Young Ecologists Niksic, cleaned the path around Slano (Salt) lake last weekend. According to the announcement, the road, which is about ten kilometers long, should be renovated by the end of September, with the assistance of the Municipality and Electric Power Industry of Montenegro (EPCG).

SFC "Niksic" says that this month, they will arrange paths and access roads on Liverovic and Grahovsko Lake, and they hope that with the help of local government and EPCG, they will be able to arrange the path leading from the closure on Krupac Lake to Krupac Cave.

"Few people know about this trip. It is a cobblestone road that is completely overgrown and if it gets cleaned it would have the most beautiful promenade in the city. But we can't do it alone. We need support. Ours is to initiate, but I am convinced that we will come to an understanding with the mayors of the Municipality and Elektroprivreda and that we will be able to, jointly, arrange this promenade," said the Secretary of SFC "Niksic" Vlajko Simovic.

In July, environmentalists set up two benches, a table, and an info board, in the driveway to Salt Lake, while a month earlier they organized an action to remove waste from the shore of the lake, more than three kilometers long, and from the lake itself.

Salt Lake was created in 1950 for the needs of the Perucica hydroelectric power station, while it was transformed into a reservoir lake in 1968. Its surface has 8.9 square kilometers, with a dam of 1,663 meters in length, and has great potential for the development of eco-tourism and sport fishing, and also for the ornithology.
