California Water Map

This 24x36 inch poster, suitable for framing, is a map of California's surface water system. It features natural and manmade water resources throughout the state, including the wild and scenic rivers system, the new Eastside and Los Vaqueros reservoirs and the Coastal Aqueduct, linking the central coast to the State Water Project. Water facilities are color-coded to indicate federal, state or locally-funded projects and the wild and scenic river systems. Map text explains the state, federal and local water projects; Bay-Delta issues; wild and scenic rivers; the Colorado River; and groundwater issues. The map has been called "the best water map in the state" by the San Francisco Chronicle. Complementing the map is the Layperson's Guide to California Water. Updated in May 2001.
