In the last one hundred years, imported water has transformed the environment of the Golden State and its quality of life. The key to this transformation has been expanded access to water from the Eastern Sierra, the Colorado River, and Northern California rivers. "Whoever brings the water, brings the people," wrote engineer William Mulholland, under whose leadership the process of growth through irrigation began. Now, in this provocative book, author David Carle contends that it may be time to stop drowning the California dream of the good life with imported water.
Using oral histories, newspaper articles, and autobiographies, Carle explores the historic changes in California, showing how imported water has shaped the pattern of population growth in the state. He also argues that it is possible to improve both the state's damaged environment and the quality of life if Californians will accept limited water supplies as a fact of life in this naturally dry region.
