O'Sullivan Dam, is one of the largest zoned earth fill dams in the entire United States, and creates Potholes Reservoir. It is on Crab Creek about 15 miles south of Moses Lake. The dam forms the 27,800-acre Potholes Reservoir which collects return flows from all irrigation in the upper portion of the project for reuse in the southern portion. Off Hwy 17, take Hwy 262 (O'Sullivan Dam Road) and you're there.
