This book is a reprint of the Geological Survey Professional Paper 779, which is a seminal work on the history and development of the water supply of the Comstock, including the towns of Virginia City, Gold Hill, and Silver City, Nevada. Hugh A. Shamberger (1900 - 1992), graduated from Stanford University with an engineering degree and worked at surveying and engineering jobs in California, arriving in Nevada early in 1929. Shamberger began a new phase of his career, working at mining and engineering in the developing community of Las Vegas. He then entered the state service, first in the State Highway Department, and then in the office of the State Engineer. While in this office Shamberger pioneered several techniques of studying the water resources of his adopted state, and wrote of his researches in several monographs that are widely used, including the present book.
