Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology

Addicks Reservoir, located in Texas, was built in 1948 to control flooding within the Buffalo Bayou watershed. The reservoir is part of a larger flood control project built by the US Army Corps of Engineers. It has a capacity of 120,000 acre-feet and covers an area of about 2,200 acres. The reservoir is fed by several creeks and bayous, including Bear Creek, Horsepen Creek, Langham Creek, and South Mayde Creek. These waterways provide surface flow to the reservoir, while snowpack is not a significant contributor. The reservoir also serves as a water supply source and provides recreational opportunities such as fishing and boating. Additionally, the surrounding land is used for agricultural purposes.
