Muorkkejávrre (Lule Sami) or Eidevatnet or Eidvatnet (Norwegian) is a lake that lies in Fauske Municipality in Nordland county, Norway. The 5.94-square-kilometre (2.29 sq mi) lake lies about 75 metres (246 ft) west of the border with Sweden and about 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) east of the village of Sulitjelma. The water from the lake flows west into the neighboring lake Låmivatnet.[1] The ending -jávrre is the Lule Sami word for "lake".
