I don’t understand this Geography question and need help to study.
provide, in a general sense, a complete and accurate response using the sources and directions listed below
log-in information will be provided.
(b) the “CA Base Map” that is included in the WEEK #2 Module (on the Page “HANDOUTS” for WEEK #2),
(c) the Video-Lecture entitled “Sources of the SD Region’s Water Supply” (as found in the WEEK #2 Module),
(d) the “context” of the MWD that is provided at the beginning of “Video #2” in the “I. Underpinnings of the Physical Sciences” Video-Lecture series (found in the WEEK #1 Module), and if helpful
(e) the map of “SDCWA Member Agencies” (as found in “HANDOUTS” for WEEK #2).
PAGE #1: In general terms, summarize the San Diego Region’s water supply. Do so using two meaningful paragraphs (your response should fill approximately one-page of a standard “Word” document) …
The First: Summarize the basic water-supply problem faced by the San Diego Region, and thus describe the nature and location of the actual sources-of-water upon which this region depends.
The Second: Summarize the major water-transfer projects that link the San Diego Region to its main sources-of-imported-water, and, the hierarchy-of-agencies most-directly involved in its capture, allocation, and transport. (Carefully ensure that your hierarchy-of-agencies is accurate and complete. Have it end with YOUR water provider. For those of you NOT on municipal water, have it end with either the agency that supplies water to the city-where-you-work, or else to Grossmont College.)
PAGE #2: Use the “CA Base Map” (provided on the “HANDOUTS” Page of the WEEK #2 Module) to visually show the spatial relationships described in your first paragraph above. Do this by printing out the map, then accurately and neatly drawing on it by hand (e.g., with colored pencils) and signing your name, then take a digital photograph or scan.
To help with this assignment, here’s the same question as posed in Assignment #1:
If the water that you use at your residence is purchased from a public water district (g., Helix or Padre Dam or the City of San Diego, etc.), then in very general terms describe (a) where the majority of it comes from (e.g., Rocky Mountain snowpack that melts and flows down the Colorado River, or from eastern Sierra meltwaters via the LA Aqueduct, or from streamflow out of the northwestern Sierra via Lake Oroville and “the Delta,” etc.), (b) how it gets from its source to the water district that you buy it from, and (c) any other water wholesalers (e.g., the San Diego County Water Authority, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, the CA State Department of Water Resources) that are involved in its capture and transport.
