Lake Chagan with a volume of 10,000,000 cu. m (2.6 billion gallons) was intentionally created with a nuclear bomb on the edge of the Semipalatinsk Test Site in Kazakhstan by the Soviet Union in 1965. The test was designed to test the feasibility of using nuclear explosions to create freshwater reservoirs. Lake Chagan is also known as Lake Balapan.
