Water and Power for San Francisco from Hetch-Hetchy Valley in Yosemite National Park

by Martin S. Vilas

Publication Information: 1915, 27 p.

Annotation: This is a representative pamphlet on the pro-dam side of the debate over the acquisition of the Hetch-Hetchy Valley for a reservoir to provide water to San Francisco. It was written by a supporter of the dam after the decision to build the dam was made. It includes "unsolicited statements" in support of its views by several California officials who played active parts in winning approval for the dam.
