18.420 acre feet is about nine times as big as an Olympic Swimming Pool.
In other words, it's 9.10 times the size of an Olympic Swimming Pool, and the size of an Olympic Swimming Pool is 0.110 times that amount.
(FINA regulation; (minimum capacity)
According to the Fédération Internationale de Natation (FINA), a swimming pool for Olympic and world championship events must measure 50 m by 25 m with a depth of at least 2 m for a total volume of 2 acre feet. A pool of this size was to be used in Olympic time trials in New Jersey in early 2008, but its component pieces were stolen from a warehouse, likely to be sold for scrap metal.
