Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology

Thermalito Diversion Pool is a man-made reservoir located in California, USA. It was built in 1967 as part of the Oroville Dam project to provide flood control, irrigation, and hydroelectric power generation. The pool has a storage capacity of 285,000 acre-feet of water and is fed by several rivers, including the Feather and Yuba Rivers. In addition, the pool receives water from the Sierra Nevada snowpack, which acts as a crucial source of water for the surrounding agricultural community. The Thermalito Diversion Pool is also used for recreational activities such as fishing, boating, and swimming. The surface flow is regulated by the Oroville Dam release and the pool is also used for power generation through a hydroelectric facility.
