A Drop in the Bucket

Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. The Wildwoods Foundation, a project of Community Partners

Become engineers to bring water to the cities of California.

A Drop in the Bucket explores the challenge of bringing water to Southern California by having visitors build a working model of the California Aqueduct system.

Providing a hands-on introduction to basic engineering concepts, visitors design and build a system to deliver water to California cities, from San Francisco to San Diego.

Visitors learn about local and regional water issues, as well as the connection between water conservation and energy conservation.
