Natural lakes in California are divided into very large lakes, small lakes, ponds. There are five large lakes present in California. The evaporation rate of the lakes were verified using the USGS professional paper 272-D. Based on this the total surface area of lakes found in California accounts to 2,319,350 acre feet.
