Spring Creek Debris Dam is located in Butte County, California and was constructed in 1965 as a flood control measure. The dam is 1,130 feet long and 110 feet high and has a capacity of 62,700 acre-feet. The hydrology of Spring Creek is fed by two main sources; surface flow from the surrounding hills and mountains, and snowpack from the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The area surrounding the dam is primarily agricultural with crops such as rice, almonds, and walnuts being grown. The reservoir created by the dam is also used for recreational purposes, including fishing, boating, and camping. The dam is periodically inspected and maintained to ensure safety and effectiveness in flood control.
