How is this article relevant to the present day water shortage? The article stands out as breaking news but instead turns out to be a story on what happened a century ago!

Joe's articles are appropriately labled "Our Past" and reflect the not to distant rural agrarian roots of the Pomona Valley.
One could point you to the fact that Today's Water Shortages may have alot to do with what happened in the past. Perhaps ownership of water rights are part of the problem, perhaps building in an area without sufficient water resources are part of the problem, perhaps forgetting the lessons of "Our Past" are part of the problem.
Southern California is over-built. If you love the climate... follow the Latitude line of say Euclid/Mission in Ontario (close enough to Brea) which is 34.0549 around the globe and you will find you are living in the same wonderful climate as ... North Africa, Syria, Iraq, Iran, and Afganistan.
All the garden spots of the world with ample water supplies lay along that latitude line. Kind of makes you wonder doesn't it?
Good article JoeB!
