Tinemaha Reservoir is located in the eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains of California, and was created in 1957 to provide irrigation water to the Owens Valley. The reservoir is fed by snowpack from the surrounding mountains and by the Tinemaha Creek, which flows into the reservoir from the south. The hydrology of the reservoir is managed by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP), which controls the flow of water in the Tinemaha Creek and the diversion of water to irrigation canals. The reservoir is also used for recreational purposes, including fishing and boating, although access is limited. The surrounding area is used for agriculture, with alfalfa and other crops grown using water from the reservoir. The Tinemaha Reservoir is an important source of water for the Owens Valley, and its management is critical for the sustainability of the local ecosystem and agricultural economy.
