Located 8 miles northeast of Medford in Jackson County off Hwy 140, Agate Lake is an irrigation reservoir built by the Bureau of Reclamation in 1966 and managed as a component of the Talent Division of the Rogue River Basin Project, a multipurpose water resource development with emphasis on irrigation. The reservoir was formed by a 77-foot high earthfill, rock-faced dam which impounds the waters of Dry Creek. Inflow to Agate Lake also comes via a canal from Yankee Reservoir. Outflow is into Dry Creek and ultimately into irrigation canals for use downstream.
