Upper Bohernabreena Reservoir
Upper Bohernabreena Reservoir
Built in the 1880's and also known as Glenasmole Reservoir. On the left is a by-pass channel, along which the River Dodder flows under normal circumstances. Although it was built in the Dodder valley, the reservoir is not fed by that river it is too peaty for the public water supply. Instead it collects water from a number of local streams which don't originate in the mountain peat bogs. However, during heavy rain some of the Dodder flow spills over the weir at Castlekelly and is contained in the reservoir, hopefully preventing flooding further downstream in Dublin.
