The dam has a height of 122 feet and a length of 278 feet. The hydrology of the dam is sourced from snowpack runoff from the Sierra Nevada Mountains and surface flows from Owens Creek.

The dam is managed by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, and they regularly monitor and maintain the dam to ensure public safety.
