Heggmovatnet is a lake that lies in the municipality of Bodø in Nordland county, Norway. The 9.38-square-kilometre (3.62 sq mi) lake is located about 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) northeast of the village of Løding. The lake is regulated and it is the main water source for the town of Bodø.[1] The water flows out of the lake into the river Heggmoelva, which then flows into the lake Vatnvatnet.[2]
