Abstract:

Tully Lake can store water to an elevation of 642 feet. The project can provide up to 1,825 acre-feet 595 million gallons of water reservoir storage. The water at Tully Lake is of basically good quality but has high levels of color, iron and manganese which would have to be removed by standard treatment methods before it would be suitable for public water supply. Without treatment the water would still be suitable for agricultural uses, fire fighting, and some industrial uses.
