The Lai da Curnera is a reservoir in Val Curnera in the canton of Graubünden in the municipality of Tujetsch . Together with the Lai da Sontga Maria and Lai da Nalps reservoirs in the neighboring valleys, it forms a single water management system connected by pipes.

The nearest town is Tschamut. The lake is about 2.5 km south of it. The lake can be reached via the Oberalp Pass . At the hamlet of Surpalits, a small mountain road branches off towards Lai da Curnera, which is prohibited from driving. A barrier prevents access for unauthorized persons.

In the movie Edge of Tomorrow (2014), the dam serves as a supposed alien hiding place.
