The reservoir was established by the city of Golden in 1904 to hold water for the city system. Water was piped from Squaw Mountain across Beaver Brook and Lookout Mountain, then from the reservoir into the city. Easement for the piping and reservoir were traded for residential development water taps, sold initially by Rees C. Vidler, and later by other developers. When Golden changed their water supply to Clear Creek in the 1960s, mountain residents were forced to accept continued untreated water until the Lookout Mountain Water District was established in 1988. The district purchased Golden's rights to reservoirs on Squaw Mountain, the pipe system, and the "Golden Reservoir" on Lookout Mountain.
