Includes descriptions of the Lake Eleanor and Hetch Hetchy reservoir sites and a summary of the city's efforts to obtain rights of way. Following Interior Secretary Garfield's decision to grant rights of way and reservoir sites at Lake Eleanor and Hetch Hetchy, the city held a special election to ratify public support for the acquisition of these lands and water rights and to authorize a bonded debt of $600,000 for this purpose. San Francisco voters approved the Tuolumne supply and the bonds by a considerable margin. A bit rubbed, tanned and soiled, old vertical crease where folded for mailing, a very good copy. (#166297).
