West Canada Creek - Hinckley Reservoir

Hinckley Reservoir

Hinckley Reservoir is a man-made lake on the West Canada Creek just upstream from the Prospect Gorge. The dam depends on 117,000 cubic yards of concrete, and 600,000 yards of dirt fill to hold back the water. In 1928 the name was changed to Kuyahoora Lake after campers got the State committee on Geographic Names to okay the change. The water from Hinckley Reservoir is used as drinking water for Utica, NY, and also to regulate the water level in the Barge Canal.

Famous quotes containing the word reservoir:

    It’s very expressive of myself. I just lump everything in a great heap which I have labeled “the past,” and, having thus emptied this deep reservoir that was once myself, I am ready to continue.
    Zelda Fitzgerald (1900–1948)
