Silver Lake Reservoir

Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology

Silver Lake Reservoir is a man-made body of water located in Silver Lake, Los Angeles, California. Constructed in 1907, it was a crucial component of the area's water supply system. However, due to drought conditions, the reservoir was drained in 2015. The reservoir's hydrology is dependent on the surrounding mountains' snowpack, which provides the majority of the area's water supply. In addition, surface flow from the Los Angeles River and local groundwater also contributes to the reservoir's water levels. The reservoir was not used for agricultural purposes, but it provided recreational opportunities for nearby communities, including jogging, walking, and fishing. Despite its current dry state, plans are in place to restore the reservoir and reintroduce it to the community as a public space.
