Lindo Lake in Lakeside, is the only natural lake in the County of San Diego and was originally fed by Quail Creek. In the 1960’s a dam was constructed on Quail Creek upstream of Lindo Lake which severed natural water flow into the lake. Stormwater and urban runoff from the hillsides surrounding Lindo Lake became its primary source of water and water quality has deteriorated over the years.
Lake restoration will be completed in two phases: Phase 1 restored the east basin and Phase 2 will restore the west basin. Phase 1 construction was complete in August 2022. Plans for the west basin restoration are in the final stages of review. Bid and award of a construction contract for the restoration work is anticipated for this winter.
