Water Issues

Lake Hodges/Olivenhain Reservoirs
San Diego County Water Authority

posted 02/12/13

Work at the lakes has been completed. The pipeline tunnel connects the City of San Diego’s Lake Hodges ( seen from Del Dios Hwy.) with the Water Authority’s Olivenhain Reservoir which is on the hill above the Highway. This construction will enable an exchange of water between the lakes in order to balance the water levels. It is part of the San Diego County Water Authority Emergency Storage project  which also includes the expansion of San Vicente Reservoir.

The impacted JPA trail from Del Dios Gorge to Lake Hodges is now open.
