Yngern - one of Sweden's cleanest lakes
With its 15 square kilometers, Yngern is the largest lake in the southern parts of the county. The lake is embedded in a magnificent forest enclosure with few buildings. The water is so clean that several
residents along the lake use it as drinking water. The water quality, size and diversity of the young, with all the bays, islands and straits make it a unique biological diversity in the lake.
The lake's varied and relatively untouched surroundings with old-growth forests, mountain slopes, bogs and streams enhance the species richness in the area.
To the east of Yngern is Turingeåsen, a cobblestone ditch with sand and gravel that filters and cleans rain and stormwater and supplies Yngern with clean water. In the ridge there are ridge pit lakes that were formed when large blocks of ice melted away 10,000 years ago.
Explore the vegetation by the water
Unusual plants live on Yngern's gravelly and sandy bottoms. The stem mudcreeper is a plant that depends on the lake's clean water, which in Stocksholms län is only found in lake Yngern.
Other typical plants for Yngern are the rosette-leaved plants Styft Braxengräs and Notblomster. In the dense bream grass mats, a variety of small insects such as insect larvae, worms, mussels and small fish hide.
Along the shores there are here and there trees that have fallen into the water, some due to storms and beavers. The trees become an important protection for shoals of fish and a habitat for algae and insects.
Rich animal life
Ospreys and grebes live around undisturbed clear water lakes, unusually many pairs nest at Yngern. In the lake there are many unusual species and species that are normally only found in flowing oxygen-rich water. The yellow dragonfly is one of them. The small dragonfly is part of Nykvarn's municipal coat of arms.
To think about when you are staying in the area
When you pick mushrooms, fish, swim, paddle, take clean drinking water or simply enjoy the nature of the Yngern area, you are using so-called ecosystem services. The services are not a matter of course, but are dependent on how humans affect nature. The young's unique water quality and teeming with life are very sensitive to negative impacts and many who live around the lake use the water as drinking water. Within the catchment area, all water flows in the direction of the lake.
