The district lakes are the largest lakes in Skagafjörður. They are formed by the merger of the eastern and western Jökulsá, which both escape Hofsjökull. The eastern river is more watery. Its average water flow is close to 40 cubic meters per second (at Skatastaðir in Austurdal), but the summer flow is usually considerably higher, often up to 100 cubic meters per second. However, the winter flow is less, often 20 – 30 cubic meters per second. Can then significantly reduce the spring water in the river bank off Newjabær Mountain. Jökulsá west is the average water volume by about half my size, close to 20 cubic meters per second. It is also much higher in the summer (often up to 40 cubic meters per second) than in the winter (often 10 – 15 cubic meters per second) and is, however, a source of spring water, especially in the court case. The rivers coincide in ravines, but below them they fall into the flatlands and the channel of the Waters is flat. There, Norðurá is added to them and more lakes, smaller, from Tröllaskagi. The waters flow there on the ears and drift around. There, Norðurá is added to them and more lakes, smaller, from Tröllaskagi. The waters flow there on the ears and drift around. There, Norðurá is added to them and more lakes, smaller, from Tröllaskagi. The waters flow there on the ears and drift around.

Further down their course, they descend as they descend below the Tungusveit. There, their channel will remain less sloping, along Vallholm and the Isle until they reservoir up the Hegranes before they fall into the sea. For centuries, it was thought that the lakes had been submerged to the west, close to what is now the Húseyjarkvísl. However, they may have branched out over the flatlands, as they seem to have done for a long time when they have not been obstructed in their flow. The water travel history of the flatlands has not yet been fully traced, but the other will agree that they have created the flat and filled up the fjord where it is now.

By their very nature, the Waters are flattered by this creative work when they are self-reliant and recharge it with dirt and sand. The upload is greatest and the content is rough on top. Below, the sediment will be finer and the slope smaller. This increases steeply in the countryside, but it has long been the case that it stretched ever further into the remnants of the fjord reservoirs. Two of these will have resulted:

Lands will have flowed more and more at the top of the flatland and floods will have spread over an ever larger area of ​​the lower plateau. It is uncertain how much of these changes have occurred in historical times. In general, lakes will have become brighter, as glaciers grew, the weather cooled, but vegetation and soil degraded over the last few centuries. Its effects are similar. It is certain that well-flooded and swampy meadows around the bottom of Vallhólmur and the Eiland were one of the main reasons that numerous plots in the Stedarsveit and Blönduhlíð were 60 – 100 centuries old, ie. manor eligible.

Gardens have been made in many places, though smaller than these, and canals have been dug in many parts of the countryside. This slightly reduces the fact that water flows as widely and stands as high in floods as it used to be. The flood of district waters around the countryside will not have been accurately mapped from year to year.
