The San Luis Reservoir stores water for San Jose and other cities and also provides hydropower. As you can see, it is very low. In a normal year, the water would probably be 50 feet higher. A farmer’s pond on the way to it was mostly full two months ago. Today it was dry. The San Luis Reservoir is on CA-152 between I-5 and CA-101 at Gilroy.
Yeah, yeah, I know, it should be in landscape mode but hey, it was 110 and I hiked up a steep hill in sandals to take it!
