The creation of St. Francis Dam in Los Angeles as a resevoir for diverting water from the San Franciscito River into the Santa Clara River, and as a collection area for the Los Angeles-Owens River Aquaduct, affected many towns and areas of the Santa Clara Valley in Ventura County, including Santa Paula.
