East Branch Reservoir

East Branch Reservoir

Completed in 1939, East Branch Reservoir is located near Middlefield by Ohio State Route 322 and Ohio State Route 608 and is formed from damming the upper reaches of the Cuyahoga River.

East Branch is a secondary reservoir in the Akron Water Supply system with the main purposes for flood control to downstream areas, replenishment of water to the Cuyahoga River during dry periods and maintaining an abundant supply of quality source water for drinking water treatment.
