The Flatiron Reservoir is located in Loveland, Colorado, and was constructed in 1951 by the Bureau of Reclamation for irrigation purposes. The reservoir's water source comes from the Colorado River, which is transported via the Colorado-Big Thompson Project. The reservoir has a capacity of 46,000 acre-feet and is primarily used for irrigation, domestic, and industrial purposes. The hydrology of the reservoir is influenced by the surrounding mountain ranges, which contribute to its water supply through snowmelt and precipitation. The reservoir's primary surface flow providers are the Little Thompson River, and its tributaries, while the snowpack providers are the surrounding mountain ranges. The reservoir also serves as a recreational area, with activities such as fishing, boating, and camping available.
