The lake stretches in the longitudinal direction for up to 10 kilometers. It is 3 kilometers at its widest point, and 150 meters at the narrowest point. The water surface area is 1,240 hectares. The average depth is 9.8 meters and the maximum is 43 meters. The lake is clear. According to research from 2004, the tank was classified as class II clean.
