NCSSM 2011 Summer Symposium, The Waterless West: The California Water Wars NCSSM 2011 Summer Symposium, The Waterless West: The California Water Wars Presentation Transcript

  • The California Water Wars
    The Waterless West
  • The Architects
    from left to right:
    J.B. Lippincott, Fred Eaton, and William Mulholland
  • The Owens River Valley
    The Owens Valley lies 200+ miles from Los Angeles
  • The Hopes of the Owens Valley
    In the first decade of the twentieth century, Owens Valley residents anticipated a Bureau of Reclamation Project to irrigate their farmlands.
    J.B. Lippincott was the USBR official in charge of projects in the Pacific region. He was also a resident of Los Angeles.
    While serving as USBR Supervising Engineer, Lippincott simultaneously served on a Board of Engineers researching access to water for Los Angeles.
  • The Hopes of the Owens Valley
    LA officials used Lippincott’s connection to the USBR to befuddle Owens Valley residents
    Following an appeal by a CA State Senator to President T. Roosevelt, he declared
    “it is a hundred or a thousand fold more important to the state and more valuable to the people as a whole if used by the city than if used by the people of the Owens Valley”
    Against the recommendations of the State Representative from Inyo County, CA.
