Silva

The biggest artificial lake in Ilo.

Geography

Silva covers an area of 4,000 km2 and it is on average 10m deep. The maximum depth of the lake is 20m. It stretches from the capital of Eli in the middle of the island and up to the southern body of water named Isla.

Fauna & Flora

Environmental monitoring studies are conducted continuously during the years in Ilo and the last data showed no marked decrease in overall water quality, but a slight decrease in visibility due to an increase of algae.   Silva has many different kinds of fish and as in all of Ilo's lakes, you have to have a permit to fish if you aren't employed as a fisherman.
