Donkey Reservoir




Plate 80X. Donkey Reservoir 1969-2002 Viewed east-southeast to Donkey Reservoir from Boulder Top. Also shown to the southeast of Donkey Lake are Middle Reservoir, Lower Reservoir, and Left Hand Reservoir - - all in the Donkey Creek drainage. Round Lake is also visible below Donkey Reservoir. Donkey Lake is still a functional reservoir, but the dams have been breeched on all the other lakes. Donkey Reservoir was at maximum draw-down in 2002 due to the extended drought and downstream water demands. Conifers, primarily spruce, are replacing aspen. All aspen stands have been heavily invaded by conifers.
