Due to a shortage of water in the Ipswich area in the 1960s, a list of twenty potential sites for reservoirs was made, with Alton being the chosen site. The land was mainly farmland, but was also home to a mill and Alton Hall. The mill was dismantled and reconstructed at the Museum of East Anglian Life in Stowmarket.

Construction and filling of water took 13 years to complete. Alton reservoir was opened in 1987 and is fed from the river Gipping and openings on the North side of the river Orwell. Pumping station and sewage treatment plant below the dam capable of handling up to 10 million Imperial gallons of 45.000 m3 of water per day. Between 85% and 95% of the water goes to Ipswich and Derby via the Wherstead reservoir and the Orwell bridge with the remainder fed to the villages of the Peninsula Sotli and Suffolk.
