The Šance water reservoir is a reservoir dam on the upper stream of the Ostravice River in the Moravian-Silesian Beskydy, built between 1964 and 1969. The name is derived from the Šance hill (576 m) on the left bank near the dam. During the construction of the dam, the central part of the village of Staré Hamry was flooded and the railway line from Frýdlant nad Ostravicí to Bílá in the Ostravice-Bílá section was canceled; The road to White had to be transferred to an estacade in the slope above the left bank. The main purpose of the dam, located under a sparsely populated area in the middle of the Beskydy Mountains, is the accumulation of supplies for the production of drinking water at the Nová Ves plant in Frýdlant nad Ostravicí. The tank is therefore subject to hygienic protection and swimming and other recreational activities are prohibited in it. An important secondary use is flow control and flood protection
