Abstract: In this brief feasibility study first the lake routine as implemented in LISFLOOD is presented and the required input parameters are discussed. Then, the effect of including the lakes using the Lago di Maggiore, Lago di Como, Lago di Garda, Lake Leman, and Lake Constance is illustrated. It is shown, that including the lakes probably will give a better reproduction of the simulated hydrograph, but that a new calibration of the catchment parameters is required. Considering the spatial scale of EFAS, the results also suggest that only large lakes influence discharge sufficiently, so that a difference in EFAS performance is expected. Thus, two selection criteria are suggested, constraining the number of lakes to be implemented in the operational EFAS. As for most of these lakes the necessary input parameters for the lake routine are readily available its implementation into the operational EFAS appears feasible.
