A map for a plan proposed by M. C. Tunison for a gravity-flow aqueduct to bring water from the Colorado River to Southern California. The Colorado Aqueduct that was actually built in the 1930s requires pumping, whereas the L.A. Aqueduct from Owens Valley is powered solely by gravity. Tunison's plan called for taking the Colorado River at a northern location, in Utah, in order to get the water at a high elevation from gravity flow.
