The water collected in the reservoir is treated at the Balara Treatment Plant by the Manila Water, the private concessionaire of the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System, the government agency in charge of water supply, in Metro Manila's East Zone. 1.5 million liters of water pass through this reservoir every day. It is located in the La Mesa Watershed Reservation, the last forest of its size in the metropolis.
