Shaver Lake is a reservoir located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. It was created in 1927 when the Stevenson Creek was dammed. The lake is a popular recreational destination, attracting visitors for activities such as boating, fishing, camping, and hiking. The hydrology of the lake is heavily influenced by the surrounding mountains, which provide a significant amount of surface flow and snowpack during the winter months. The snowpack serves as a critical water source for downstream agricultural areas. The lake and its watershed are managed by the Southern California Edison Company, which operates several hydroelectric facilities in the area. In addition to its recreational and agricultural uses, Shaver Lake also serves as a valuable habitat for several species of fish and wildlife.
