Lafayette Reservoir

At the time EBMUD built its Lafayette Aqueduct from the Sierra Nevada, this reservoir was created (by damming Lafayette Creek) to store aqueduct water for emergency use if the aqueduct supply should be interrupted.  Later, land under the dam was discovered to be unstable, and the dam was lowered and widened.  The reservoir is unusual in that its water level remains almost constant at 456 ft elevation so long as the aqueduct is functioning.
Open for fishing and boating (see Lafayette Reservoir Recreation Area).

Lake Chabot
DeLorme Northern California  p.105  C-5.  East Bay Hills Central Trail Map  EF-7.
Reservoir created in 1875 by Anthony Chabot's damming of San Leandro Creek. Employing techniques he learned as a hydraulic engineer in the gold fields, Chabot used water cannons to wash huge quantities of earth from surrounding hillsides into the creekbed. Chinese laborers helped smooth the dam, and 200 wild horses were driven back and forth to tamp down the earth. Originally called San Leandro Reservoir (hence the name of the Upper San Leandro Reservoir), it today is part of the East Bay Municipal Utility District, but is saved for emergency water supply. The stable shoreline provides a much richer ecosystem than is present in most reservoirs. The reservoir was leased to the East Bay Regional Park District in 1966 and is now a part of Chabot Regional Park.

Lake Merritt
DeLorme Northern California  p.104  B-3.  Thomas 1997  p.649  H-4.
In 1869, Oakland Mayor Samuel Merritt completed a dam and bridge across San Antonio Slough at 12th St, replacing the earlier toll bridge. Merritt had for about 15 years been buying up the marshy land around the slough, so he did very well on his real estate investment. Although officially named Lake Peralta, the lake soon became popularly known as Merritt's Lake, later Lake Merritt, and the name eventually became the official one. The lake soon was surrounded by expensive houses (after the sewage problem was solved), but the city purchased the land gradually over the years and established a belt of parkland all around the lake (though it is very narrow in many places). The slough south of the dam has been filled except for a narrow channel, and it has been necessary to add pumps to prevent flooding after heavy rains. The lake still is subject to tidal action, and its water varies from saltwater to about half freshwater depending upon the amount of recent rain (and subsequent inflow from storm drains). The "Necklace of Lights" around the lake was created in the 1930s, then discontinued in 1942 as a wartime economy and blackout measure. Over the years, the physical system was badly deteriorated. In 1988 the Necklace of Lights was restored and continues to provide a lovely spectacle each night. Despite the attractive water and a nice beach in Sunny Cove, swimming in Lake Merritt has been outlawed from the beginning, primarily because of pollution.

Lake Merritt Waterfowl Refuge
Just after Lake Merritt was created in 1869, Samuel Merritt convinced the California legislature to outlaw hunting on and around the lake, making it the first waterfowl refuge in the United States (the first national park, at Yellowstone, was not created until 1872). Rumor has it that Merritt was not so much concerned about the welfare of the waterfowl as he was about the value of his property development around the lake, where rich residents objected to having poor people from the town hunting dinner in their backyards. In 1909, the city of Oakland completed its acquisition of land all around the lake and began its development of Lakeside Park. In 1915, some oil-soaked birds were brought in from the estuary needing special care, and a program of daily bird feedings was begun at the lake to encourage ducks to stay in the relatively safe waters of the lake (the daily feedings continue to this day). Sometime after this, the city of Oakland hired Paul Covell as a naturalist, and responsibility for the refuge was transferred from the state to the city. The refuge continues to be administered by city naturalists based in the Rotary Nature Center near Bellevue Ave & Perkins St.

Lakeshore Park
(1) Thomas 1997  p.649  J-3.
Oakland city park built on filled marshland between the northeastern arm of Lake Merritt and Hwy 580. The Pergola (sometimes called El Embarcadero) on the lakeshore was built in 1907 on the site of an earlier small wharf (Castro's Landing) that was used by early settlers from San Francisco who brought shallow boats into the slough to trade with the Mexicans for hides, tallow, and lumber. This is the area where Pleasant Valley Creek and Indian Gulch (Trestle Glen Creek) once flowed into San Antonio Slough. The Lakeview Branch Library is located in the park.

The 45 acres of Lakeside Park include most of Adams Point, purchased by the city in 1909 from Edson Adams (one of the three founders of Oakland). Adams never built a home on this land, and until the lake was dammed it was a popular picnic spot for people from San Francisco as well as the East Bay (easily reached by boat in those days). The area above Grand Ave was also owned by Adams and was developed in the early 1900s.

Funded by the US Department of Energy, administered by University of California - Berkeley. A descendant of the laboratory of Ernest O Lawrence, who built the first cyclotron at UC Berkeley in 1931. By the early 1940s, the UC Radiation Laboratory ("Rad Lab") was a major center for basic physics research with particle accelerators. During World War II, the laboratory was expanded greatly on a hillside campus east of the main UC Berkeley campus, playing a major role in the development of nuclear weapons. Today it engages in a wide range of research and educational activities, and nuclear weapons work supposedly has been moved to other locations.

Created by the Atomic Energy Commission in 1952 as the Livermore branch of the University of California Radiation Laboratory. Ernest Lawrence, founder of the Berkeley lab, urged the AEC to create the Livermore facility to diversify the nation's nuclear weapons research and create competition between the staffs of the two laboratories. Lawrence chose Edward Teller, a physicist at the Los Alamos nuclear weapons lab, to oversee creation of the new facility, and later chose Herbert York (only 3 years out of grad school) to head the Livermore lab. Although owned by the federal government, the lab has always been operated by the University of California - Berkeley. The lab originally had four major divisions: a program in magnetic fusion (Project Sherwood), a program in testing and evaluating nuclear weapons, a program in thermonuclear weapons (the "hydrogen bomb"), and a program in basic physics. Lawrence emphasized teamwork among a variety of scientific and engineering disciplines, aimed at accomplishing a particular mission. Over subsequent years, the lab has diversified into a wide range of research including laser fusion, innovative types of "power plants," biomedicine, and environmental science.
