The incentive for the construction of the water structure Môťová was based on the post-war growth requirements of industrial companies in Zvolen. They required an urgent solution to water provision. The reservoir was created by damming the Slatina stream with a natural homogeneous dam. The construction of the waterworks did not require any resettlement of the population, liquidation of residential houses or other constructions. The flooded area consisted mainly of meadows and pastures.
VS It was built on the river Slatina in the years 1953 – 1957. The filling of the reservoir was started in 1957. After reaching the maximum level, the function of the earth dam was performed.
The Môťová reservoir serves for balancing the minimum flow rates on the Slatina River, it provides service water for the timber industry and for the Zvolen heating plant. Its secondary purpose is to produce electricity. As the reservoir is in the immediate vicinity of Zvolen, it is also used for recreation, sport fishing and water sports.
The water work is administered by the Slovak State Water Management Company.
