Låmivatnet or Loamevatnet  (Norwegian) or Loamejávrre (Lule Sami) is a lake in Fauske Municipality in Nordland county, Norway. The 11.43-square-kilometre (4.41 sq mi) lake lies about 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) east of the village of Sulitjelma, just south of the Sulitjelma Glacier and north of Junkerdal National Park. The border with Sweden is 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) east of the lake.[1] The Lomi Hydroelectric Power Station uses the lake as a reservoir.[2]
