About this title:

Synopsis: From the time of Spanish occupation of Alta California to the 20th century, major influences in the world, the United States, California and El Dorado County have impacted ditch construction or been influenced by ditch construction. This dynamic, mutual relationship is explored in Wealth from Gold Rush Waters through the two distinct ditch construction eras within the county, the 1850s and the 1870s. It is a look at the developing political legislation and economic structures of a territory (and later, State) in the chaos of the gold rush and the role of gold rush ditches in El Dorado County in stabilizing the new society. This is the story of how a state became an influence in the world economic market in ten short years through the development of water conveyance systems. It is the story of the changing uses of water resources which strengthened a developing economy in El Dorado County from 1848 to the 20th century.
