Currant Creek Dam


The Strawberry Aqueduct & Collection System diverts flows from Rock Creek and eight other Duchesne River tributaries through approximately 40 miles of tunnels and aqueducts for storage in Strawberry Reservoir. Upper Stillwater Reservoir serves as a regulating reservoir at the beginning of the Strawberry Aqueduct to provide temporary storage of high spring flows. Currant Creek Reservoir diverts water from Currant Creek and five of its smaller tributaries into the aqueduct.
