The San Pablo Reservoir is an open cut terminal water storage reservoir owned and operated by the East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD). It is located in the valley of San Pablo Creek, north of Orinda, California and south of El Sobrante and Richmond, east of the Berkeley Hills between the Sobrante and San Pablo Ridges. The reservoir has a total capacity of 38,600 acre feet (47,600,000 m3), and a watershed of 23.37 square miles (61 km²). The San Pablo Dam Road runs along the west side of the reservoir. Because this reservoir is a storage facility for drinking water, swimming and wading are prohibited. Fishing, boating, and canoeing are allowed.
