Totier Creek Dam was originally designed in 1969 and construction was completed in 1971. The dam and reservoir were designed to have sediment, water supply, and flood control storage components. Currently both Totier Creek and Totier Creek Reservoir supplies water to the Scottsville area and at construction had a design volume of 155 million gallons. Drainage area for this reservoir is 30 square miles. One of Albemarle County’s public parks, this reservoir is popular for fishing and is stocked with sunfish, channel catfish, and largemouth bass. Both swimming and motor boating are prohibited since this reservoir is a community raw water supply.
