Do not touch the water!
I find it interesting that of the many lakes in San Diego County, not a single one is natural. All are water reservoirs for thirsty Southern Californians living in San Diego County.
I also find it interesting that people are not allowed to swim in the lakes, more properly called reservoirs, nor even make contact with the water. Everything that I’ve read indicates that it has to do with water quality. But here’s what I don’t understand: Why are boats allowed on the reservoirs? Quite frankly, I’d rather drink water that has had people swimming in it than water that has had a boat, especially a motorboat spouting gas fumes, leaking gas, and leaking oil, in it, not to mention all the fish and birds in the water. More relevant, though, is the fact that the water is purified before we drink it. So what really gives?
One of the nicest reservoirs in the area is Lake Poway:
