Los Angeles Aqueducts

Paralleling west of Highway 14 through the map area, the two covered aqueducts carry water from Mono Lake to Los Angeles, a distance of 226 miles. Completed in 1913, the first aqueduct siphoned water the entire distance without the use of pumping stations. In 1970, the second aqueduct was completed. Both are visible just 3 miles west of Jawbone Station on Jawbone Road.

Also within the Jawbone Area is the Black Pipe, part of the original construction project.
