Jordalsvatnet is a lake in Bergen, in Hordaland, Norway, and the main source of drinking water for the borough of Åsane, with almost 40,000 inhabitants, as well as the higher parts of Bergenhus borough. Due to agricultural activities in the Jordal valley, the raw water quality is relatively low.[1]
