“A beautiful piece of New Jersey”
The Manasquan Reservoir is a source of water for municipalities and utilities, as well as a 1,204-acre park located in Howell Township, in Monmouth County, New Jersey, United States. The park is part of the Monmouth County Park System. The Manasquan reservoir, along with the BMUA, Glendola and Swimming River reservoirs provide a large portion of the drinking water for Central New Jersey. The Manasquan Water Supply System manager is Paul McKeon. The reservoir was created by damming the Timber Swamp Brook. Several portions of wetland were destroyed in the making of the reservoir. By New Jersey state law, for all wetland destroyed by mankind, additional equivalent amounts of wetlands must be recreated artificially in the immediacy of the destroyed wetland. The reservoir has a four billion gallon capacity and a maximum depth of 40 feet (12 m). It can supply up to 30 million US gallons (110,000 m3) of water per day.
