Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology

Flaming Gorge Reservoir is located in Utah and was created in 1964 as part of the Colorado River Storage Project. The reservoir is fed by the Green River and is known for its clear waters and excellent fishing opportunities. The hydrology of the reservoir is unique due to the large amount of snowmelt that occurs in the surrounding mountains. The snowpack provides the majority of the surface flow to the reservoir, while additional water comes from the Flaming Gorge Dam. The reservoir is used for recreational purposes, including fishing, boating, and camping. It also provides water for agricultural use, with several irrigation projects drawing water from the reservoir. The reservoir continues to be an important resource for the surrounding communities and visitors alike.
