....  "The Peninsula Watershed – which comprises the land around the Crystal Springs Reservoir, Pilarcitos Lake and San Andreas Lake – was closed at noon Thursday and will remain closed Friday, according to the SFPUC.

The reservoirs help provide drinking water to 2.6 million SFPUC customers in San Francisco, Alameda, Santa Clara and San Mateo counties and the land around them has popular trails for hiking, running and biking.

All trails in the area are closed through Friday and the SFPUC is limiting its own activities in the area as well. In addition the SFPUC is closely monitoring the 36,000-acre Alameda Watershed in the East Bay."   Read more.
