Geist Reservoir - Geist Reservoir is a reservoir in Indianapolis, Indiana constructed in 1943 by damming Fall Creek to provide water for Indianapolis. After completion, Geist Reservoir was the second largest man made lake in Indiana providing approximately seven billion gallons of water.
Geist Reservoir was named after Clarence Geist, who was the former owner of the Indianapolis Water company. Reservoir planning began around 1913, when hydraulic engineers estimated taht White River and Fall Creek would not provide enough water for the needs of the city. Clarence Geist bought out 5,000 acres in Fall Creek Valley in the 20s and 30s, which included the small town of Germantown, which now lies at the bottom of the reservoir.
The reservoir was completed in 1943, five years after Geists death. The Geist area has experienced rapid growth in recent years. It is noted for its unique topography and the reservoir.
