Location: Omaha Township Reservoir is a small reservoir (27 acres) located approximately 2 miles northwest of the city of Omaha in Gallatin County.

Description: Omaha Township Reservoir was constructed by the damming of an unnamed ravine in the 1960s to create a potable water supply for Omaha Township. In 2002, the water needs in and around Omaha were met by well water and currently neither reservoirs, the city or township, are used as a water source. Omaha Township Reservoir has a surface area of 27 acres, a maximum depth of 16 feet, and an approximate average depth of 7 feet. The reservoir has a water shed consisting of agriculture and woodlands and has a shoreline distance of approximately 1.0 mile.

History and Status of the Sport Fishery: Recent survey data suggests Omaha Township Reservoir is currently supporting a balanced fishery.
