Description

The story of the publicly financed Central Valley Project in California which built dams, reservoirs, hydroelectric plants, and canals. De Roos ( San Francisco Chronicle ) details the politics, economics, and social struggles played out by the actors involved, including Pacific Gas & Electric, the State of California, and United States Department of the Interior, and Congress. Most of the material consists of government reports, published newspaper accounts, and other documents detailing the scandals and controversies over the funding of the dam and the allocation of scarce water and electric resources.
