The dam Fláje (Czech Údolní nádrž Fláje ) is located in the Czech part of the Ore Mountains near Český Jiřetín ("Georgendorf") and dams the Flöha (Czech Flájský potok ) in its upper reaches.

The only pier dam in the Czech Republic was completed in 1963. The dam is used as a drinking water reservoir for the Most district . The dam is 56 m high and 416 m (with the "dam crest" (crown structure?) 459 m) long. The reservoir of the Fláje dam covers an area of ​​153 hectares. The water is dammed from a catchment area of ​​approx. 43 km².

Two larger and one small hydropower plant with outputs of 2 times 4 MW and 16 kW use the reservoir water to generate electricity. The draining water is dammed up again in the Rauschenbach dam below .

During the construction of the dam, the place Fláje ("Fleyh") was flooded and the villages of Vilejšov , Oldříš , Mackov and Pastviny in the water catchment area were abandoned. In the storage area there is also the former branch of an old raft ditch from the Flöha, which lies dry here, reaches the Saxon area after a few kilometers and flows off to Clausnitz .

Because it is used as a drinking water reservoir, it cannot be used for recreational purposes. Entering the bank areas of the reservoir is prohibited.
