Lake Britton is a man-made reservoir located in Northern California, created in 1926 by damming the Pit River. It is fed by various streams, including Burney Creek and Clark Creek, as well as snowmelt from the surrounding mountains. The lake's hydrology is regulated by the Pacific Gas and Electric Company, which uses the water for hydroelectric power generation. Agriculture in the area relies on water from the Pit River and its tributaries. The lake is also a popular recreational destination, offering fishing, boating, camping, and hiking opportunities. It is known for its clear water and scenic beauty, with the Lassen National Forest and volcanic peaks of Mount Shasta visible from its shores.
