Lake Aa is an artificial lake near the center of Münster that was first made in the 1920s as a flood control measure, and later expanded in the 1970s.
It looks fine and is a great place to cycle around. Also it is good for sailing, but not for swimming, in fact swimming is forbidden because of the poor water quality, which is caused especially by the fact that the River Aa flows through intensively fertilized farmland before emptying into the lake.
There have been various attempts to improve the water quality of the lake, and some people are under the impression that they will be able to swim there in 2010, but from what I have read about it I don't think I will join them, since there are plenty of other places to swim that don't have contaminated water.
