Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology

Fall Creek Lake is a man-made reservoir located near Lowell, Oregon. The lake was created in 1966 by the construction of the Fall Creek Dam on the Fall Creek, a tributary of the Middle Fork Willamette River. The dam is owned and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The lake provides flood control, hydropower, and irrigation water for agricultural purposes. The hydrology of the lake is dependent on snowpack, which feeds the water supply in the spring and summer months. The lake is also a popular destination for recreational activities such as fishing, boating, and camping. The surface flow of the lake is maintained by water from the Willamette River, which enters through the dam's intake structures. The lake is an important water resource for the surrounding communities and is managed for the benefit of both humans and wildlife.
