Faulvatnet (Lule Sami: Låddejávrre) is a lake that lies in the municipality of Sørfold in Nordland county, Norway. The 7.24-square-kilometre (2.80 sq mi) lake is located about 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) north of the village of Straumen, just west of Rago National Park. The water flows out into the Sleipdalselva river and the water is used for power generation at the Lakshola hydroelectric power station.[1]
