Water Reservoirs – Storing Water for our CommunitiesYour SoCal Tap Water
Water reservoirs are a means to store both drinking (potable) and non-drinking water (non-potable). Reservoirs can be in the form of a lake or tank. Beneath the ground you can also find natural underground reservoirs where water is stored until it can be pumped, treated and delivered to homes.
