Diamond Valley Lake

Eastside Reservoir Project

These photos were taken from the public Lookout Point located off of Winchester Rd. Hwy 79 at Newport Rd. The view is the west end of the lake construction, the west dam and the water holding reservoir which is fed from the San Diego Channel (aqueduct). From there the water will be pumped into the lake (photo #16 bottom right),.
