Bleikvatnet is a lake in the municipality of Hemnes in Nordland county, Norway. The lake lies about 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) northeast of the village of Bleikvasslia. The 12.59-square-kilometre (4.86 sq mi) lake is regulated by a dam. The water flows out to the south and then down a 64-metre (210 ft) tall waterfall on the river Bleikvasselva.[1]
