About this collection

Water has long played an integral part of California's history and as such a myriad of materials have found their way into the circulating and special collections of the Libraries of The Claremont Colleges. It will be the purpose of this collection to make many of these materials available through the internet.

 

Currently the collection consists primarily of bulletins of the California Department of Water Resources and its predecessor agencies. These bulletins present findings from hundreds of investigations conducted throughout the years from one end of the State to the other. Topics represented in this collection include: water quality, flood control, water distribution, water conservation, water usage, and drought as well as some geology. The collection also contains materials pertaining to the creation and operation of the Central Valley Project, the California State Water Project, and their component units. 

 

Some of the historical place names and descriptions reflect language that is inappropriate or offensive. The Claremont Colleges Digital Library has chosen not to change or omit these place names. While we do not support such language, our mission is to provide an accurate and complete record of the past.

 

This project is a work in progress, so please check back for updates.
