Caption: Thermal spring. Warm water flowing out of the ground and down a slope covered in plants. This is a thermal spring formed after the damming of a nearby river. The Lac de Salanfe, located in Valais, Switzerland, formed behind a dam built in the 1950s. It was found that large quantities of water were being lost into the ground, and that there was an increase in seismic activity in the area. It was discovered that in the nearby Val d'Illiez, thermal springs were forming due to the effects of the water lost from the Lac de Salanfe.
