I can't imagine any man-made lake going to that depth for any reason? Are they going to breed diverse kind of big fishes in that lake?

Imagine they build a lake as deep as BD height, might be able to breed as well some of the world most exotic deep sea creatures.

I do belive that somewhere around 253cm is not impossible at all, but over 260cm....thats madness!

1 foot = 30.48 centimeters
260 centimeters div 30.48 = 8.53 feet deep

I suppose you're talking about average depth, but still, how can those 7 last centimetres make it madness?

Anyhow, it's a good depth! A local rectangular hexagon lake in my city (Bergen, Norway) is below 1m and it still seems deep

twickline: i think he was talking about a lake as deep as the burj dubai is tall - not the burj dubai lake

It's enough for my boat, which only draws 5 feet with the keel all the way down.
