The reservoir was formed between the cities of Bulle and Fribourg, by building the Rossens Dam on the Sarine river in 1948. The arch dam has a height of 83 m and a crest length of 320 m. The reservoir filled in about four months after completion. The dam is operated by the Groupe E SA.

The remains of the castle of Pont and a chapel are located on the Ile d'Ogoz, one of the five islets in the lake.
