Somerville Lake is owned and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers; it is located northwest of Brenham, Texas. The dam lies in Washington County, and is also managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The reservoir was impounded in 1967; it provides flood control, water for irrigation, and a site for recreational activities.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers also maintains multiple recreational facilities on the lake. There are four parks located near the lake; Rocky Creek Park and Yegua Creek Park are developed parks and Pecan Lake Park and McCain Park are undeveloped parks. Fishing and boating are also popular activities on the lake.
