The Swift Creek Reservoir is a 1700-acre, 5.2 billion gallon, man made lake in Chesterfield County, Virginia. It provides 20 per cent of the county's water supply, and has a watershed area of 61.9 square miles. It is fed by eight tributary creeks: Little Tomahawk Creek, Tomahawk Creek, Swift Creek, Otterdale Creek, Deep Creek, West Branch, Dry Creek, and Fuqua Creek. The Reservoir provides drinking water, hydro electric power, and a recreational area to Chesterfield residents.

The Swift Creek Reservoir was built in 1965 as a CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps.) project. It was built to be a public water supply for surrounding communities. The dams were to provide hydro electric power to some of Chesterfield county.[1] In 1992, the Watershed Management Committee was established by the Board of Supervisors to protect and preserve the reservoir. They established limits on construction and oversaw development and maintenance Of nearby communities. In 2000 the Watershed Management Master Plan was started to reach former goals such as stormwater treatment facilities and reduction of all pollutants. In more recent years projects have been undertaken to improve the infrastructure on and around the reservoir including repairing and replacing multiple bridges.
