Uvas Reservoir is a man-made lake located in Santa Clara County, California. The reservoir was created in 1957 as a part of the Uvas-Carnadero Project, which was designed to provide water to agricultural and urban users. The reservoir has a capacity of 22,000 acre-feet and is supplied by both surface flow from Uvas Creek and snowmelt from the nearby Santa Cruz Mountains. The water from the reservoir is used for irrigation and drinking water purposes. The surrounding area is also used for agricultural purposes, including the production of grapes, almonds, and hay. Additionally, the reservoir is used for recreational activities such as fishing, boating, and hiking. The Uvas Reservoir plays an important role in both the hydrology and economy of Santa Clara County.
