You hear it all the time: the CAP system is an engineering marvel. And it’s true. But what you may not know about are the individual components that make up the system… turnouts, tunnels, check gates, and pumps. Features that make our water supply reliable…recharge projects, storage reservoirs and an interconnect.
So we have created a story map that highlights these features and more so you can learn more about this amazing infrastructure.
The story map explains the importance of each component of the system and gives you an aerial video tour, a rare glimpse into some of the remote areas. So check it out and see first-hand the engineering marvel that brings water to our arid desert.
