Willow Creek

Description:

Willow Creek Lake is a flood control dam designed to protect the city of Heppner, Oregon. The dam also provides valuable water storage for irrigation for the area. When a flash flood occurs, the flood waters will be caught and stored, and slowly released until the lake returns to its maintained elevation of 2063 feet.
