Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology

Cherry Valley Dam, located in Riverside County, California, was constructed in 1930 and impounds the Cherry Valley Creek. The dam is a concrete arch structure that stands over 110 feet tall and is approximately 700 feet long. It serves as a water storage facility for the surrounding area and is part of the Banning Bench Groundwater Basin. The dam primarily relies on surface flow from the San Gorgonio River and snowpack from the nearby San Bernardino Mountains for its water supply. The water stored in the reservoir is used for agricultural irrigation and municipal water supply for the nearby cities of Banning and Beaumont. Additionally, the Cherry Valley Dam and its reservoir offer recreational opportunities such as fishing and boating.
