Dinner Presentation:

William Mulholland and the Construction of the Los Angeles Aqueduct

Join us to welcome Jim Yannotta of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, who will present the story of the construction of the Los Angeles Aqueduct, arguably the most essential piece of infrastructure in the City’s history. The 225-mile, $23 million project included construction of a series of canals, 43 miles of tunnels, and 12 miles of steel pipe siphons across 2,200 ft. of elevation change from the Owens Valley to its terminus in the San Fernando Valley. The 6-year construction process was completed in 1913. The presentation will also highlight the contribution of William Mulholland, Chief Engineer for the DWP, who was central to the success of the project.
