Pulgas Water Temple Now Open!

The Pulgas Water Temple reopened to the public on Friday morning, September 2nd. Some minor re-landscaping continues, but the temple grounds and parking lot are now open for normal hours: Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Wedding reservations can be booked for 2012 by calling (650) 872-5900.

The Pulgas Water Temple and the facilities around it serve the Hetch Hetchy Regional Water System and function as part of our Crystal Springs Reservoir System. The Crystal Springs Reservoir System provides emergency backup and supplementary drinking water supply to San Mateo and San Francisco counties.

Sawyer Camp Trail has also reopened after a one-day closure on Thursday, Sept. 1.  

Lastly, late tonight and all day on Saturday, September 3rd, frequent cement truck deliveries near the southern trailhead will occur. This major concrete pour for the Lower Crystal Springs Dam stilling basin will be completed after this weekend. Following this weekend’s work, truck traffic in the area will still be present, but lighter than the last few Saturdays.

Enjoy the beautiful holiday weekend in the Peninsula Watershed!

The temple was built in 1934 to mark the location where the waters of the Sierra reach the Peninsula
