Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology

Boca Reservoir is a man-made lake in Truckee, California. It was created in 1939 by the construction of the Boca Dam on the Little Truckee River. The lake has a surface area of 980 acres and can hold up to 40,000 acre-feet of water. It serves as a source of water for the Truckee Meadows Water Authority and provides recreation opportunities for the surrounding communities, including fishing, boating, and camping. The hydrology of the reservoir is heavily influenced by the surrounding snowpack, which provides the majority of the water supply. The Little Truckee River is the primary surface flow provider for the reservoir, but several smaller streams also contribute. The surrounding area is used for agriculture, with hay and cattle grazing being common activities. Overall, Boca Reservoir is an important resource for both water supply and recreation in the Truckee area.
