Water from the Wilderness
Trace the extraordinary history of San Francisco’s water system. When the city chose a site in the pristine Hetch Hetchy valley, an epic battle was led by John Muir. Today, with the impact of climate change keenly felt, the politics of water remain front page news. Explore the ways an urban water utility, and those who depend on it, are learning to adapt and plan for an uncertain future.
