OSLO, April 30 (Reuters) - Water reservoir levels for
hydropower generation in Norway and Sweden rose for the first
time in months, energy authorities said on Wednesday.
    Water levels are key to electricity prices in the Nordic
region which gets half its power from hydroelectric stations.
    The Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) 
provided the following data on Norway's reservoirs. The data for
Swedish reservoirs are from Svensk Energi. Both sets of data are
also posted by Nordic power exchange Nasdaq OMX Commodities on
its website.
