Sunt partes lacus tres:

Lacus Inferior

-----------------
Translation into English from this article found in Vicipaedia (Wikipedia in Latin):
"lake of Baden (region in Germany) or lake of Bregenz (city in Austria), Lower lake,...,Swabian Sea, Lake of Constance is a lake that lies between Switzerland, Austria, Bavaria, Wrttenberg and Baden.
The lake has three parts:
Upper lake
Lake of Baden in strict sense or Lake of 鈁erlingen (German city)
Lower lake
The Rhine flows between Bregenz (Austria) and Sankt Margrethen (Switzerland) in the Upper lake. The Rhine flows out in Constance (Germany) where it flows in the Lower lake.
-----------------
The lake of Constance is not only a natural beauty but also men and their politics have made it an interesting place. The lake is surrounded by three German speaking countries (Switzerland, Austria and Germany) and our imagination makes the Rhine river to flow across it.
The history of different people and cities that have dominated the lake gave all these names in Latin. Another name not listed there is "Lacus Venetus" after the Venetian people (of Venice, Italy). Name in Englis is Lake of Constance and in German is called today Bodensee.
