The rains we had and we’re still having have significantly improved the volume of San Pablo Reservoir and other reservoirs and dams all around the Bay Area, giving us a little hope (fingers crossed) that the amount of rainfall was significant enough to avoid a water rationing this summer.
San Pablo Reservoir is owned and operated by the East Bay Municipal Utility District. The reservoir is storage facility for drinking water so no swimming and wading allowed. EBMUD also operated the San Pablo Reservoir Recreation Area, popular for fishing, boating, picnicking, hiking. There is an entrance fee of around 6 dollars.
There is also a hiking and biking trail that is accessible via San Pablo Dam Road. You don’t need to pay the entrance fee. One lazy afternoon, that’s where we decided to do some walking and take some photos.
Here is the home of Watery Wednesday. Join us.
