Griffy Reservoir, commonly known as Lake Griffy, is a reservoir in the city of Bloomington, Indiana. Created by a dam on Griffy Creek in the 1920s, the reservoir used to serve as the main source of drinking water for Bloomington for several decades, until that role was taken over by the larger Lake Lemon and Lake Monroe in the 1950s. A large part of the lake's forested watershed is designated as the Griffy Lake Nature Preserve (GLNP). Another part of the watershed is included into Indiana University's
Research and Teaching Preserve as its Griffy Woods section. Griffy Woods includes a smaller reservoir, known as the University Lake, which in a sense was a predecessor of Griffy Lake, and is part of the latter's watershed.
