San Antonio Reservoir is located in Alameda County, California, about three miles east-southeast of Sunol. It was built in 1964[1] by the City and County of San Francisco. Formed by the James H. Turner Dam[2] across San Antonio Creek[1] not far above where it flows into Alameda Creek, its purpose is to store water from the Hetch Hetchy Aqueduct and local wells and watersheds. It has a capacity of 50,500 acre feet (62,300,000 m3).[1]

The reservoir is not open to the public.
