Sinopsis
Excerpt from Survey of Mountainous Areas: December, 1955

Almost one-fourth of the surface water resources of California originates within the central Sierra Nevada region - the area under investigation in this bulletin. Although the water resources of the area far exceed its own ultimate water requirements, these resources have not been generally developed for use within the region itself except in some small local areas. The large water supply projects which exist on most of the major streams have been developed for the irrigation of agricultural areas on the Central Valley floor, for municipal and industrial use in the metropolitan areas of the San Francisco Bay region, and for the generation of a substantial portion of the hydroelectric energy produced in California. The rapid increase in population in the State since World War II has resulted in increasing demands for the construction of new conservation projects on Sierra Nevada streams, primarily to satisfy increasing needs for water outside the mountainous areas where the water originates. Some of these projects have already reached construction stages.

Partly as a result of these increasing drafts on the water supply by outside agencies, and partly as a result of the accelerated growth which the mountain and foothill areas themselves have experienced since World War II, the people of the region have shown mounting concern regarding the disposition of the local water resources. Their own demands for water are rising, and they consider the possibility that continued appropriation of water for use in outside areas may jeopardize their own future development. Their concern is evidenced by the formation in recent years of a number of new public water supply agencies, by the filing of numerous applications to appropriate water for present and future needs, and by general opposition to new applications to appro priate water filed by agencies serving areas outside the region.
