A plan to create a new man-made lake for water storage is now another step closer to development.

The United States Bureau of Reclamation is releasing their latest updated plans on the proposed Sites Reservoir north of the San Joaquin Delta.

The proposed Sites Reservoir would hold up to 1,500,000 acre-feet of water.  That’s three times the size of Millerton Lake.

The new report from the Bureau of Reclamation revises plans and impacts and opens a 60-day window for public comment.

Located north of the Delta, the man-made reservoir would be the 8th biggest in California and the largest built since the 1970s.
