Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology

Lahontan Reservoir is a man-made lake located in Nevada, near the town of Fallon. The reservoir was created in 1905 as part of an irrigation project aimed at providing water to the surrounding agricultural land. The lake is fed by the Carson and Truckee Rivers and its size can vary depending on the snowpack levels in the surrounding mountains. The reservoir provides water for irrigation, recreation, and serves as a habitat for fish and wildlife. The Lahontan Reservoir is a popular destination for boating, fishing, and camping. The surface flow from the Carson and Truckee rivers is critical to the reservoir's water levels, and the snowpack in the surrounding mountains plays a significant role in determining the amount of water available for use.
