Lake Paul Hodges, or Paul Hodges Reservoir, is a reservoir/lake located in Southern California, about 31 miles north of San Diego and just south of Escondido, California. When full, the reservoir has 1,234 surface acres, a maximum water depth of 115 feet, and 27 miles of shoreline. [1] Interstate 15 crosses Lake Hodges via the Lake Hodges Bridge, which is the only inland way to San Diego. Approximately 1000 feet west of the I-15 freeway bridge there is a bicycle/pedestrian bridge which opened on May 15, 2009 and is the longest stressed ribbon bridge in the world. [2] [3]

Hodges Reservoir is owned by the city of San Diego, and supplies water to the San Dieguito Water District and Santa Fe Irrigation District.

In 2005, the San Diego County Water Authority, in conjunction with the City of San Diego, began work on a pipeline to connect Hodges Reservoir with Olivenhain Reservoir. The connection will provide the ability to store 20,000 acre-feet of water at Hodges Reservoir for emergency use. The project is expected to be completed in late 2010.
