Max discharge

Number of cubic feet per second the spillway is capable of discharging when the reservoir is at its maximum designed water surface elevation.

45 acre feet
Max storage

Maximum storage is defined as the total storage space in a reservoir below the maximum attainable water surface elevation, including any surcharge storage.

32 acre feet
Normal storage

Normal storage is defined as the total storage space in a reservoir below the normal retention level, including dead and inactive storage and excluding any flood control or surcharge storage. For normally dry flood control dams, the normal storage will be a zero value.
