The flooded Ruins of Villa Lago Epecuen

Share/Bookmark

Tourist village was established along the shore of Lago Epecuen, a salt lake some 600 kilometers southwest of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The Villa reached 5000 inhabitants. On 10 November 1985 an enormous volume of salt water broke the rock and earth dam, and inundated much of the town. The town had 10 metres of water in the streets. The wet weather later reversed, and the waters began to recede in 2009. Today the town has a lone resident, Pablo Novak, who returned to his home after the flood waters receded.
