SHEFFIELD RESERVIOR

The City of Santa Barbara’s Sheffield Reservoir, located at the base of the Santa Ynez Mountains, was created by the construction in 1917 of Sheffield Dam which has the distinction of being the only dam in the United States to fail due to an earthquake event. During the Santa Barbara Earthquake of 1925, the sandy soils under the dam liquified and created a 300 foot wide breach that unleashed 30 million gallons of water which created considerable damage and flooded the lower part of Santa Barbara. The dam was reconstructed and the facility used as an open water reservoir for the City’s drinking water for many years. Construction was completed on two 6.5 million gallon covered water reservoirs in 2006 and the site was re-contoured with soil materials over the top of the tanks and landscaped as an open space park. The decommissioned water filtration plant was preserved as a historic building. The new access roads throughout the facility were paved with a NaturalPAVE XL Resin Pavement mix formulated with crushed natural aggregate materials of coloration that closely matches that of the Santa Barbara sandstone outcrops on site and in view on the surrounding hillsides.
