The properties on Brush Road overlook the Lexington Reservor, which has a capcity of 19,000 acre-feet of water. As is usual with development projects, the reservoir was named after that which it destroyed; in this case the town of Lexington, California (The water behind the dam then flooded the town of Alma California as well).

Here is a picture of a bridge in the town of Alma as it looked on 9/26/2008:
