Through this exhibit, we hope you have gotten a sense of what Los Angeles had to go through to become the booming metropolis it is today; this city's rise to prominence can seem like an enigma. We encourage you to continue to enjoy the story of The California Water Wars and to know that there is more to the events than meets the eye regarding the history of the dams and aqueducts built by Mulholland. Some believe that it was not morally just for the city of Los Angeles to "steal" water from the Owens Valley. Others believe that since Los Angeles had more residents than the Owens Valley at the time, the water went to the better cause. Even in recent years, some people, like those of East Porterville, have had to worry about when and where they will get their next gallon of water. Like most stories, the water wars between Los Angeles and The Owens Valley include sides that are not as frequently mentioned, such as the Paiute tribe. It has been part of our mission to provide as much information as possible concerning the water wars and other disagreements. Using the resources we put together, we hope that the next time you drink a glass of water, you think of what not just Los Angeles, but California as a whole went through for that water to exist.
