Peters Canyon Wash is a tributary of San Diego Creek in central Orange County in the U.S. state of California.[1] About 11.8 miles (19.0 km) long north-south, the wash, now mostly channelized, flows in a relatively straight course southwest from the 55-acre (0.22 km2) Peters Canyon Reservoir near the Orange/Tustin borderline to its confluence with San Diego Creek near the Irvine Civic Center Plaza.[2] Less than 5 miles (8.0 km) below this confluence, San Diego Creek empties into Upper Newport Bay.[3] The largest tributary of Peters Canyon is the Santa Ana Channel (not to be confused with the Santa Ana-Delhi Channel, which flows directly into Upper Newport Bay.)
