Completed in 1933 the reservoir is a standby supply of drinking water for East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) customers.

The State Department of Fish and Game plants thousands of trout each year joining bluegill, black bass, black crappie and several kinds of catfish.........Privately owned rowboats, canoes, kayaks and sailboats are allowed at the reservoir. There is a fee for boat registration. In addition, there are rowboats and pedal boats for rent at the activity center on an hourly, half-day, or all-day basis........The recreation area is also open for bicyclists, (and for those who prefer roller skates, roller blades and scooters) on Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon until closing and on Sundays from opening until 11:00 a.m. on the paved Lakeside Trail (2.7 miles) and roads, however, no skateboards........Surrounding the reservoir are 35 picnic sites to accommodate families and small groups.
