L.A. Aqueduct Centennial Celebration

In 1907 construction began on a 233-mile project that would allow the Los Angeles region to evolve into the metropolitan landscape we know today.

It took 6 years, and thousands of men and mules to build the Los Angels Aqueduct; over the last century their efforts have allowed water from the Eastern Sierras to flow into Los Angeles.

Thousands gathered for a centennial celebration at the base of the Cascades in Sylmar, East of Interstate 5, to enjoy a theatrical reenactment of the events that took place on November 5, 1913.

The descendents of aqueduct designer William Molhulland, Los Angles Mayor Fred Eaton and other civic leaders who were instrumental in the design and construction of the aqueduct participated in the ceremony.

    From what I heard. Nothing. But that was almost 15 years later. Let’s celebrate a great accomplishment that came in on time and under budget.

    Don’t suppose they said much about the St Francis Dam.
