REMARKS - Records good except for estimated gage height and reservoir storage, which are poor. Reservoir is formed by a concrete arch dam. Dam completed and storage began in Dec. 1964. Total capacity is 19,500 acre-ft at elevation 6,735 ft, of which 15,000 acre-ft is usable storage below 6,720 ft, the spillway crest. Drawdown below 6,646.3 ft, 2,620 acre-ft restricted by sill at mouth of diversion tunnel since Nov. 1981. Reservoir serves as a basin from which water is pumped to the East Verde River. (See records for East Verde River diversion from East Clear Creek, near Pine.) Release is possible through valve in base of dam. Figures given herein represent total contents.
