Campo Moro - Lanzada - Valmalenco - Sondrio
The artificial basins of Alpe Gera and Campo Moro are located in Valmalenco, in the Municipality of Lanzada, and constitute an interesting excursion destination. In addition to the splendid panorama that can be seen along the perimeter of the lakes, the dams themselves, located respectively at 2051 meters and at 1996 meters, are a source of interest. The Campo Moro basin has a maximum capacity of 11 million cubic meters of water, equal to the capacity of 10,200 Olympic swimming pools.
The hydroelectric energy produced in Valmalenco belongs to two artificial reservoirs of the Alpe Gera and Campo Moro, and to three hydroelectric power plants, those of Campo Moro, upstream, at an altitude of 2000 meters, in Lanzada, at an altitude of 1000 meters and in Sondrio, in valley, located at an altitude of 300 meters.
The barrier of Campo Moro, built between 1956 and 1958, consists of two dams separated by a large rocky outcrop. The east concrete dam, 96 meters high and 180 meters long, is larger than the west dam, made of stones, which is only 35 meters high.
