Rita Schmidt Sudman is the director of the Water Education Foundation, in Sacramento, a non- partisan, non-profit started 32 years ago to help people understand California’s water resource issues.

In 1913 William Mulholland opened the first aqueduct in Los Angeles.  That marked the beginning of LA's expansion into a mega-metropolis.  Los Angeles gets its water from Northern California or from the Colorado River.
