The Fortifications of Copenhagen
The Floodings.


A Part of the northern defence plan, were some major floodings north of Copenhagen.

From the Furesø Lake water was led through the fortress-channel to the Northern and Southern Floodings. Furthermore it was planned to enlarge a moor area (Kagsmosen) All this was done with a complex system of dams  and channels.

To explain the size and complexity of the flooding, 22,5 million cubic feet of water would be led to the southern flooding and 10,5 million cubic feet to the northern.
