About Sherman Reservoir
Sherman Dam, located on Oak Creek, was completed by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation in January, 1962. Sherman Reservoir stores off-season water flows for release during the irrigation season. A facility of the Middle Loup Division of the Nebraska-Kansas Project, the dam creates a reservoir with 65 miles of shoreline, 69,076 acre feet of storage, and a surface area of 2,878 acres. Approximately 50,000 acres of Nebraska farmland are served by this reservoir.
