When Hartevaerket got completed in 1920, several dams had been built, in order to provide the plant (and its turbines) with sufficient amounts of water.

The largest dam has be erected by Ferup Lake and remains visible today. 

Consequently, two new artificial lakes have been created (Dons Norreso and Sondreso), converging towards the plant and further on, the Kolding river.
