Description
Map showing approximate dimensions and locations of properties in Bishop, Inyo County, California, offered for sale at public action by Department of Water and Power Water System of the City of Los Angeles on March 24, 1947.
To meet the need for water of its growing population, the City of Los Angeles began acquiring water rights in the Owens Valley in 1905. The Los Angeles Aqueduct was completed in 1913 to bring Owens Valley water to the city. During the 1920s, the City of Los Angeles began additional large-scale purchases of land in the Owens Valley to increase its supply of water from the valley, resulting in the city's almost complete control of the valley's agricultural land.
