Stung Sen Dam is a proposed multipurpose dam to be located on the Stung Sen River. The river originates in Preah Vihear and flows to the Tonlé Sap Lake in Kompong Thom, southeast of Phnom Rovieng, Cambodia. Under MoU study project and Feasibility Study by Korean company.[clarification needed] The large reservoir would submerge Kompong Putrea.

The Tonle Sap River drains the Tonle Sap Lake from the northwest before it continues further southeastward to its lower delta in Vietnam.
Status: The project is listed as "second phase" priority by the CNMC.[clarification needed]: The Stung Sen Dam is to be constructed after the Prek Thnot, Stung Battambang, and Stung Chinit dams.
