The Lother pond (also Mühlteich , rarely Lotterteich ) is an artificial pond that was created around 1568 and is located about one kilometer west of Berthelsdorf in the Ore Mountains .
It absorbs the water from the Münzbach, which in turn absorbs water from the Müdisdorfer Rösche , and is thus indirectly connected to the Freiberg district watercourse. The dam consists of an earth embankment with a clay seal.
The pond was created around 1568 at about the same time as the Rothbächer pond and the Erzengler pond to ensure the water supply for the Freiberg mining industry. It was originally the artificial pond of the Loth pit , but also served to a large extent as a mill pond. Comprehensive repairs to the pond took place around 1965–68. Below is a drinking water treatment plant that supplies parts of Brand-Erbisdorf with drinking water.
