Skjerjavatnet is a lake on the border of the municipalities of Vaksdal and Modalen in Hordaland county, Norway. The 7.37-square-kilometre (2.85 sq mi) lake sits at an elevation of 964 metres (3,163 ft) above sea level, in the mountains between the Modalen and Eksingedalen valleys.[1] The southwest and northeast ends of the lake are both dammed up so that the lake can be regulated for hydroelectric power.
