This reservoir to the south of Johnstown, PA on the north fork of Bens Creek was built between 1926 and 1932 and is part of Johnstown's municipal water supply. The reservoir has a capacity of 1,206 million gallons when at its peak depth of 100 feet. The area was in a bit of a dry spell when I visited, leaving the reservoir extremely low.
