Vau i Dejës is a municipality in the Shkodër District, Shkodër County, northwestern Albania.[1] Settlements in the area can be dated back to the 15th century, while the main city of Vau Dejes was developed to house workers during the construction of the Vau Dejes hydroelectric dam from 1971- 73. [2] After the completion of the dam, families displaced from the flood waters began to inhabit the city. Today Vau Dejes is composed of 8 villages and a city center. The population in 2008 was 12,345. The municipality covers a total of 31 km2.[3] It is the seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Sapë.
