Goose Pasture Tarn 

Goose Pasture Tarn, a 771-acre-foot reservoir in Summit County, Colorado. It is the principal domestic water-storage facility for the Town of Breckenridge and collects runoff from approximately 42 square miles of the upper Blue River watershed. In 2005, a geological study of the sedimentation deposit in the tarn was conducted by the US Geological Survey. Since 1965 the surface area and the reservoir capacity have lessened. In 2005 he surface area of Goose Pasture Tarn  was 66.4 acres, and the reservoir capacity was 771.1 acre-feet at a full-pool elevation of 9,886.4 feet.
