Guide to San Francisco Bay Area Creeks
North Beach Watersheds
Before extensive landfill, Telegraph Hill drained directly into the bay on three sides; to the southwest, runoff flowed to Yerba Buena Cove. The bayward slopes of Russian Hill and Pacific Heights drained to Cow Hollow in small rills running to a series of ponds impounded behind the dunes at Fort Mason. Washerwoman's Lagoon was one such pond.
