Lake Roland is an impoundment located in the Jones Falls, a tributary to the Patapsco River Mesohaline Chesapeake Bay Segment. The watershed draining to the impoundment covers approximately 96.8 square kilometers (23,910 acres) and spans portions of Baltimore County and Baltimore City. Lake Roland initially served as the first municipal water supply for the city of Baltimore, with the dam constructed around 1860, but the lake was abandoned as a water supply in 1915 because of silting problems. Although most of the lake is located just north of the city limits, it is owned and managed by Baltimore City.
