Entry Description

After hearing in the news daily about the California drought I got interested in seeing where the water comes from to Los Angeles. I found myself fascinated by this system of canals, tunnels, and pipelines that conveys water collected from the Sierra Nevada Mountains and valleys of Northern and Central California to Southern California and the people living around it.
