Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology

Exchequer Reservoir, also known as New Exchequer, is a reservoir located in California's Mariposa County. It was built in 1967 to provide water for hydroelectric power generation and irrigation for agricultural purposes. The reservoir is fed by the Merced River and several smaller streams, and its water is used by the Merced Irrigation District. The area surrounding the reservoir is popular for fishing, boating, and camping, and there are several campgrounds and recreational facilities nearby. The reservoir's water supply is heavily reliant on snowpack in the surrounding Sierra Nevada mountains, and the Merced Irrigation District closely monitors the snowpack levels each winter to ensure there is enough water for the upcoming year.
