The reservoir is fed by snowmelt from the Trinity Alps and the Cascade Range, as well as water from the Sacramento River. The water from Iron Canyon Reservoir is used for irrigation of agricultural land in the Central Valley, as well as for hydroelectric power generation. The reservoir also provides recreational opportunities for fishing and boating. Iron Canyon is an important source of water for the region and plays a vital role in California's water supply system.
