Cheat Lake is a 13-mile-long reservoir on the Cheat River in Monongalia County, West Virginia. It was originally named Lake Lynn, but the Board on Geographic Names officially decided upon Cheat Lake as the reservoir's name in 1976. The surface area of Cheat Lake is about 1,730 acres. It is located immediately downstream of the 10-mile-long Cheat Canyon. Cheat Lake Dam is located directly south of the Mason-Dixon line border with Pennsylvania. Cheat Lake Dam's total length across the Cheat River is approximately 1,000 feet. The first water flowed over the dam on December 23, 1925 and it began its operation on May 31, 1926
