Miramar Reservoir is owned, operated and maintained by the City of San Diego. Located in the Scripps Ranch community, the dam and reservoir were completed in 1960 as part of the second San Diego Aqueduct project. Water flowing south to the reservoir originates from both the Colorado River Aqueduct and the California Aqueduct. The reservoir is adjacent to the City's Miramar Water Treatment Plant, which serves the northern part of the City. When full, the reservoir has 162 surface acres, a maximum water depth of 114 feet and four shoreline miles. Miramar Reservoir has a water storage capacity of 6,682.4-acre feet. Water levels are monitored weekly. See the Miramar Reservoir fact sheet for more information.
