The Zeran Canal (17.6 km long), built in the 1950s after the creation of Lake Zegrzynski, was part of a waterway already planned (1930s) to connect the Vistula with the Dnieper. The purpose of the canal was to serve the transportation of future industrial areas in the vicinity of the Zeran port, as well as to shorten the distance from the Bug River to the Warsaw section of the Vistula by about 41 km.
