The 750-acre Elfin Forest Recreational Reserve serves two purposes: water management and recreation. The newly constructed Olivenhain dam and reservoir within the reserve holds 8 billion gallons of water—an extra, temporary supply for the region in case an earthquake severs or damages aqueducts that transport water from Northern California. The water storage scheme also helps to regulate the local demand for electricity. At times of peak electrical energy usage, water released from the Olivenhain reservoir generates supplemental electricity as it falls toward Lake Hodges. During periods of lesser demand, often at night, water in Lake Hodges can be pumped back up the hill to replenish the supply in the Olivenhain reservoir.
