Everyone knows the song about "a home where the deer and the antelope play." For the people who live around the Great Plains Reservoirs, that home is a reality. Neenoshe Reservoir is the largest of the reservoirs in the group and a great place to boat fish or watch birds and wildlife.
All the Great Plains Reservoirs are natural-basin reservoirs also known as modified playa lakes. Playa is Spanish for beach and describes over 25,000 shallow lakes, some only a foot deep, that dot the Southern Great Plains. Playa lakes are shallow depressions usually with clay and compacted sediments on the bottom. Their water levels fluctuate seasonally, and they have historically provided mini-oasis for the native peoples of the short grass prairie. In recent times playa lakes have been used to store water including flood water for irrigation.
Fed by the Amity Canal from the Arkansas River, the Great Plains Reservoirs are one of the most extensive projects of its kind in the west for storing flood water for irrigation. Built and modified by the Great Plains Water Company, the reservoirs were used for irrigation for the first time in 1990. Nee Noshe, which is Cheyenne for Standing Water, is one of four reservoirs in the system including Neesopah, Neegronda, and Neeskah. With the exception of Neeskah all the reservoirs are networked together with a system of canals and gates.
