¹The John R. Doutt Upground Reservoir is an 850-acre reservoir located in Delaware County, Ohio.  With its impressive size, this reservoir is the largest upground-lined reservoir in the nation and is the longest Class I Dam Structure in Ohio. The John R. Doutt Upground Reservoir holds 9.3 billion gallons, serving customers of the City of Columbus and Del-Co Water Company.  As part of a long-term, multi-phase project, the John R. Doutt Upground Reservoir is the first, and largest, of three planned reservoirs for the City of Columbus.  This phase of the project included the reservoir, a 150-foot inflatable weir and intake on the Scioto River, a 120-MGD raw water pump station, and more than 4 miles of 72-inch interconnecting raw water line.  Work began on these projects in 2011, was substantially complete in 2013, and the reservoir was filled in May 2014.
