Encino Reservoir, Los Angeles Overview

Drive north up Mulholland drive near Encino, Los Angeles, and you’ll find this massive 3-billion gallon reservoir, the Encino Reservoir, tucked away at the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains. The reservoir was originally constructed and commissioned in the late 1910s and has provided a constant water supply to the hillside residents of Santa Monica Mountains and the town of Encino.

However, due to stricter laws & regulations, various alternatives have since been looked at in the early 2000’s thanks to contamination from animal waste, algae, etc. Explore around the area for the abandoned Nike Missile base and various other trails that give beautiful sunset spots.
