The Tarrytown Reservoir is an 81 acres (0.33 km2) storage reservoir in Tarrytown, New York. It was completed in 1897 by the Village of Tarrytown as the village's main storage reservoir. The reservoir was formed by the Tarrytown Waterworks Dam which impounded a tributary of the Saw Mill River. The reservoir itself has a maximum capacity of 1,100 acre feet (1,400,000 m3).[1]

The Tarrytown Waterworks Dam is earthen, 18 foot (5.5 m) high, 315 foot (96 m) long and sits at the head of a 1.4 square miles (3.6 km2) drainage area.[2]
