SAN CARLOS RESERVOIR AT COOLIDGE DAM

Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology


San Carlos Reservoir is located at Coolidge Dam in Arizona and was constructed in 1928 by the Bureau of Reclamation for irrigation purposes. It is the largest reservoir in the San Carlos Irrigation Project, covering an area of 19,500 acres and with a capacity of up to 1,315,400 acre-feet of water. The reservoir receives water from the Gila River and seasonal runoff from the surrounding mountain ranges, which is stored for irrigation, power generation, and municipal use. The reservoir also provides recreational opportunities such as fishing, boating, and camping. Additionally, it is a valuable source of water supply for agriculture in the region, with crops such as cotton, wheat, and alfalfa being grown in the surrounding areas. The hydrology of the reservoir is influenced by both surface flow and snowpack providers, including the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the White Mountains.
