Deer Point Lake was created when a dam was constructed across North Bay, part of St. Andrews Bay, in 1961. The reservoir covers 5,000 acres (20 km2). It has a watershed (including Econfina Creek) of 422 square miles (1,090 km2). The reservoir receives an average of 600,000,000 US gallons (2.3×109 L) a day from four sources, and provides fresh water to Panama City and other parts of Bay County.
