Description
The Mojave Water Agency collection contains memorandum and meeting minutes of the board of directors about water-supply and water-rights in the Mojave, California region during the 1960s.
Background
The creation of the Mojave Water Agency was made possible through an enabling act prepared by attorney William J. Johnstone (who would later become the MWA’s first attorney) and the Mojave-Antelope Water Agency Committee. Introduced by State Senator Stanford C. Shaw, the bill gave the people of the High Desert the right to determine water policies for the Mojave River. On July 18, the bill was signed into law by Governor Edmund G. “Pat” Brown.
