More on Swimming Rules...
Swimming is NOT allowed in the reservoir. Cliff-diving is also strictly prohibited and extremely dangerous.
Wading is permitted in the reservoir. A good way to know that you are wading: your feet are always touching the ground. You are walking around the water, not propelling yourself with your arms.
