community leader or stakeholder, you may be interested in recent actions taken by the California Division of Safety of Dams about
Their recent actions require the elevation of water storage at Hodges Reservoir to be limited to 295 feet to maintain safety of the dam structure and
surrounding communities, ensure efficient use of the local water supply by the
City and other local water agencies (SFID and San Dieguito Water District) and allow for necessary maintenance and
improvement work on the Hodges Dam to occur.
Over the next year the City will work to develop
a plan to implement Lake Hodges Dam performance and safety improvements. The primary
function of Hodges Reservoir is storage for drinking water purposes, and a
secondary function is to provide recreational opportunities. The restricted
level is consistent with the reservoir’s normal elevation, so no significant
changes to its operations are anticipated. Please click here to read the recent letter from the City to the Department of Safety of Dams. /DocumentCenter/View/724/Lake-Hodges-Dam-No-8-3-San-Diego-County
water in Hodges Reservoir is split between the City, San Diego County Water
Authority, Santa Fe Irrigation District and San Dieguito Water District. The
City continues to collaborate with these partners on the development of a specific
operating plan should the level rise above an elevation of 295 feet.
