The Starina drinking water reservoir is the most important source of drinking water in the area, built on the headwaters of the river Cirocha. Building started in 1983 and finished in 1988. Step by step 3463 inhabitants were evacuated from 769 dwellings from the 7 following villages (Starina, Dara, Ostružnica, Smolník, Ruské, Velká Polana a Zvala). The total surface of the water reservoir Starina is 240 ha. The height of the water headbay is 50 m. This source of drinking water is very important because it supplies nearly the whole area of East Slovakia with drinking water.
