Most of the rivers of the southern part of California run dry, except during the monsoon season. The Amargosa River of the Death Valley is one of the important rivers of southern California. California has several natural lakes. The California State Map indicates the prominent lakes of the state. Encompassing total area of 969 square kilometer, the Salton Sea of the Imperial Valley is the biggest lake of California. The Salton Sea was formed during the early part of the 1900, when the surplus water of the Colorado River filled up the natural depression of the Imperial Valley. Mono Lake, Owens Lake, Goose Lake, Honey Lake and Tahoe Lake are few of the notable lakes of California.
