Water and Los Angeles - what is a sustainable water future?

About The Salon
Is Los Angeles a desert? Conventional wisdom tells it is. Reviewing the historical conditions of the region, however, suggest otherwise. How should this ecologically fragile region plan for its future and manage its water resources? Ms. Hall presents looks at landscape and urban design from the standpoint of water resource management.

That's an interesting photo - is it an aerial view of LA in the early days? I've never seen the LA river in its natural state before.

It says City of Glendale in the pix. I did a google maps over lay. It's pre cement 1938, and the 2 major roads that you see are the historic Hwy 66 (now Hwy 2-Glendale Fwy and Colorado (what is now the 134) You can see where all of the Japanese trucks farms in the valley were pre-WW2.
