New picture tour of LA Aqueduct on Aquafornia

Have you ever wondered how all of those pipes, ditches, and lakes along Highway 395 connect, or how a rain drop that falls on the east side of Mt. Dana might get to Los Angeles? Well, you’re not alone, and the Aqua Blog Maven of Aquafornia, the California Water News Blog, has done a great job of illustrating and explaining the complex system that is the LA Aqueduct from Mono Lake to Southern California in a comprehensive new slideshow!

New to the Aquafornia blog? It’s a great site “dedicated to providing comprehensive news and information about California water issues, as well as issues affecting the southwest.” Produced by the Water Education Foundation, Aquafornia is a great spot to learn about all things water in California.

Check out the slideshow now!


  1. Hi Arya,
    I couldn’t find the slideshow about the LA Aqueduct on the Aquafornia website.

  2. Hi Sherryl,
    I couldn’t find that slide show on their site anymore either–they must have moved their links since we posted this in 2009. A Google search turned it up right away here.
