Three Creeks Reservoir




Plate 154 THREE CREEKS RESERVOIR: 1948 - 1999 The 1948 photo looks across the reservoir while under construction. The stream is the North Fork of Three Creeks. A few spruce (Picea sp.) were removed during road construction, but conifers generally appear to have increased over the years while aspen (Populus tremuloides) has declined. Some of the aspen in the 1999 photo appear to have regenerated.
