Police are asking for help finding off-roaders who damaged land by Löðmundarvatn lake, reports Sunnlenska

As reported, off-road traffic has been causing considerable damage to soil and moss, which is in fact illegal to drive on. Natural replenishment of the moss, which is in many instances crucial to preventing soil erosion, can take years.

The damage to the land by Löðmundarvatn lake is believed to have been done on the 19th or 20th of August. The tire tracks are approximately 30 cm wide and anyone with information is asked to reach out to Hvolsvellir Police department by calling 488-4110 or emailing hvolsvollur@logreglan.is.
