The LA Aqueduct at 100

Nov. 5, 2013, marks the 100th anniversary of the creation of the Los Angeles Aqueduct, the legendary civil engineering project that brought water 300 miles south from the Eastern Sierra Nevada and created the conditions for the growth of modern Southern California. The then-small city of 100,000 shortly grew into the giant metropolis it is today. This week, KPCC takes a look at the history of that grand endeavor, how water now makes it to L.A. and what the future is for the area's water resources. You can listen to the weeklong series on Take Two and view a timeline, archival photos, maps and more here. Check back daily for new content.
