    So leafy - Owens Lake, California. This lake is also a symbol of the unsustainability of the state's water management system. When Los Angeles bought the water rights to this entire valley in the early 1900s this was a healthy lake. By 1924 they drained the lake for LA's consumption, leaving it a barren dust bowl which created so much dust pollution it caused respiratory & health problems for local residents. LADPW now keeps it shallow flooded to control the dust levels. Aerial image.
