How does water get from Northern California to Southern California?
Furthermore, where does Northern California get its water?
The Colorado Aqueduct, built in the 1930s, transports water from the Colorado River to Southern California. It's operated by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) and is the region's primary source of drinking water.
One may also ask, where does Southern California get most of its water? Southern California, home to half of the state's population, depends on the State Water Project, the Colorado River Aqueduct and the Los Angeles Aqueduct supply for about half of its supply.
Besides, how is California's water transported?
Water distribution. There are six main systems of aqueducts and infrastructure that redistribute and transport water in California: the State Water Project, the Central Valley Project, several Colorado River delivery systems, the Los Angeles Aqueduct, the Tuolumne River/Hetch Hetchy system, and the Mokelumne Aqueduct.
Who controls water in California?
California Environmental Protection Agency Cal-EPA is the state's regulatory agency that enforces pollution control laws and oversees six other state entities including the Air Resources Board, the State Water Resources Control Board, and the Integrated Waste Management Board.
