One hundred years after William Mulholland reportedly said “There it
is, take it,” Los Angeles officials on Tuesday marked the centennial
of the completion of the Los Angeles Aqueduct, an engineering feat

Los Angeles from the Owens Valley, opened on Nov. 5, 1913 — a

Two community meetings were held October 2013 to discuss various
proposed alternatives in managing the sediment at the Pacoima
Reservoir. "The amount that needs to be removed now equals seven

The cost will range from 85 to 180 million dollars, depending on
which option is selected," states Rosemary Jenkins. View the rest of
CitywatchLA article to explore the options.
