Abstract:

Cadillac Desert relates the story of the epic quest for water and the role it has played in the transformation of the American West. This first episode tells of William Mulholland's search for water for the people of Los Angeles. Superintendent of the L.A. water system in 1913, he found a solution to the problem in a remote valley 250 miles to the north. After the city secured water rights to the valley's Owens River, he spent 6 years building an aqueduct across the Mojave Desert. The program also recalls the shady land speculations behind the deal, how northern ranchers fought back, and the great disaster that destroyed his dream.
