San Pablo Reservoir Check Dams – Orinda CA

Description

There are 12 small rock check dams built along Mistletoe Creek at the eastern end of the reservoir. According to current EBMUD staff, the dams were all built during the 1930s by the CCC. Most seem to be operating as intended. They are not currently accessible to the public.
