The Impact of the Los Angeles Aqueduct on California

Write a short 2-page essay (600-800 words) explaining the impact of the Los Angeles Aqueduct on California (both the Los Angeles area and the Owens Valley/Mono Basin).  Have the challenges in water distribution/availability changed in the 100 years since LA DWP built this aqueduct?  What are the challenges that the aqueduct water distribution faces now and will face in the future?  Can you draw a parallel to other water conflicts in the US (I’m thinking about Standing Rock, but you may have other ideas).  This IS NOT a research paper; it is your analysis.  Your writing should not include any direct quotes in your word count–everything should be in your own words.  You do not need in-text citations.
