Limentra is the name of two streams of the Bolognese and Pistoiese Apennines, both among the major tributaries of the Reno River. Due to their relatively large discharge, they are both exploited for the production of hydro-electric power.
The Limentra di Sambuca rises from Monte la Croce, elevation about 1,319 metres , and passes through Sambuca Pistoiese. It has a length of 19.4 kilometres and flows into the Reno near Ponte della Venturina, near the border between Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna. Near Pàvana is a dam with a capacity of 900,000 cubic metres . The waters are also used for the aqueduct serving Pistoia.
