Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology

Casitas in California refer to small, artificially created reservoirs or lakes primarily used for hydroelectric power generation, irrigation, and recreation. The history of these reservoirs dates back to the early 1900s when the demand for water in the region increased due to the growth of agriculture and urbanization. Today, Casitas are managed and operated by various agencies such as Ventura County Watershed Protection District and Casitas Municipal Water District. These agencies are responsible for ensuring the availability of water supply to the residents of the region. Furthermore, Casitas receive water from both surface flow and snowpack providers such as the Santa Ana River and the Ventura River. The reservoirs are also used for recreational purposes such as boating, swimming, and fishing, while the surrounding agricultural lands rely on the reservoirs for irrigation.
