White Drin River sub-basin

The White Drin River rises in Kosovoin the foothills of the large mountainous area north of the town of Peja.

Its basin is the largest of the country's four sub-basins, and drains almost half of Kosovo.Only a small part of the sub-basin extends into Albania. The only existing dam in the White Drin River is in Radoniqi, which is 58 m high.

Altogether, the river discharge represents less than half of the inflow from natural springs and precipitation. Springs make up about 5 percent of the total inflow, but contribute around 9.5 percent to river discharge.
