Scotts Flat

Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology

Scotts Flat is a reservoir located in Nevada County, California, USA. It was created in the early 1940s by the Pacific Gas and Electric Company to supply water for hydroelectric power generation. The reservoir is fed by two small creeks, Deer and Greenhorn, and has a capacity of 49,000 acre-feet. The surrounding forests and slopes also provide water to the reservoir, which is used for irrigation purposes, providing water to nearby farms and vineyards. The dam's construction was a massive and complicated process, requiring the relocation of many people and the construction of roads and bridges. Today, Scotts Flat is a popular recreational area for fishing, boating, and swimming. The lake is also a provider of water to the local community, and the surrounding forests offer ample opportunities for hiking, camping, and other outdoor activities.
