The McTavish Reservoir was constructed between 1852-1856 by the City of Montreal after a massive fire in 1852 destroyed half of the homes in Montreal. The original design of the reservoir was open but eventually covered in 1957. The McTavish reservoir is an underground reservoir on McGill University’s campus. It has enough water to fill 40 Olympic size swimming pools and half a million Montrealers get their drinking water from McTavish.
