Alpine Lake

Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology

Alpine Lake is located in Marin County, California, and was formed in 1914 when a dam was constructed on Lagunitas Creek. The lake supplies water to the Marin Municipal Water District and is an important source of water for the region. The hydrology of the lake is characterized by a small watershed, with most of the water coming from precipitation and snowmelt. The lake is also fed by several small streams and is surrounded by dense forests. The snowpack in the winter provides a significant portion of the water for the lake. The lake is primarily used for recreational purposes, including fishing, boating, and swimming. The surrounding area is also used for agriculture, including dairy farming and crop production. The lake is an important part of the local ecosystem, serving as habitat for a variety of plant and animal species.
