The Glauchau reservoir is a reservoir southwest of Glauchau in Saxony . The lake was created from 1936 to 1938 to supply industrial water and was rehabilitated from 1992 to 1996. The lake is used today for recreational recreation.

The barrier structure is a dam made of earth with a clay seal . The dammed body of water is the Mülsenbach. The Zwickauer Mulde flows west of the lake ; their water was also dammed earlier.
