Extracting Salt

Owens Lake is a symbol of the unsustainability of California's water management system. When Los Angeles bought the water rights to this entire valley in the early 1900s this was a healthy lake. By 1924 they drained the lake for LA's consumption, leaving it a barren dust bowl which created so much dust pollution it caused respiratory & health problems for local residents. LADPW now keeps it shallow flooded to control the dust levels.
