About Sihl

The Sihl is a Swiss river that rises near the Druesberg mountain in the canton of Schwyz and eventually flows into the Limmat in the center of the city of Zürich. It has a length of 73 km, including the Sihlsee reservoir, through which the river flows. Water is abstracted from the river at the Sihlsee, leading to decreased downstream water flows and a consequent reduction in water quality.
