Jökulsá á Dal, also called Jökulsá á Brú or Jökla is a river in the northeast of Iceland. Of its original length of 150 km (making it the longest river in Iceland's Eastern Region), 25 km are now part of the artificial lake Hálslón created for the Kárahnjúkar Hydropower Plant. This reduced the river's discharge from 205 m³/s to 95 m³/s, consisting of water from tributaries below the dam. Before construction of the dam, the river used to transport approximately 120 t of sediment per hour into the North Atlantic. The water from the reservoir is now redirected into Lagarfljót.
