The Aqueduct is 100

Today is the 100:th anniversary of the Los Angeles Aqueduct that brings water from northern California to the Los Angeles area. It was seen through to completion by william Mulholland in 1913. He thought that if you supply water people will come…. It turned out he was correct. Mulholland’s words when water started flowing down the cascade in Sylmar on the very last stretch into the L.A. basin was: “There it is, take it!” That statement is a vital part of the history of Los Angeles and the aqueduct that brings water to the city.
