Foldsjøen is a reservoir in the municipalities of Surnadal and Rindal in Møre og Romsdal counties, Norway. The lake is dammed from the Folda River and the water is used in the Trollheim power station. Slightly more elevated and directly to the south is the Gråsjøen reservoir, which is also behind a hydro-power dam.[1]
