The Ben Crom Reservoir

The reservoir, the last part of the Belfast Water Commissioners plan for the area, was constructed in the upper Silent Valley from 1953-57 to hold and supply water into the larger Silent Valley Reservoir below. The dam wall is 700 feet across and the reservoir has a total capacity of 1.7 million gallons.
