Phillips Reservoir from Social Security Point on Aug. 6, 2001. The reservoir, which impounds 73,500 acre-feet of water when its full, is holding about 16,000 acre-feet now. Although it may not drop to its minimum of 5,000 acre-feet, the reservoir is likely to recede this fall to near or possibly below its record low of 11,000, set in 1977.Editor's note: This photo is the last of three exposures published Aug. 7, 2001, that were taken over a two-month period at Social Security Point.
