The embankment height is 21.3 metres and the freeboard about 1.5 metres with the total reservoir length being 160 metres. It has a capacity of 14,100 cubic meters and a surface water area of 1.8 hectares. The catchment area is 154 hectares with rainfall coming from the south of the Round Table and South Barrule.
