The atlas was developed as an attempt to provide the average citizen with a single-volume point of access to understanding how water works in the State of California. It addressed treatments of every aspect of water supply, delivery, and use in California, the nature of the water environment, the changes mankind has made in that environment, the history of water development, the operation of the major natural and artificial water systems, the relationship of water pricing to water consumption, the uses of water in industry, recreation, and energy development, the problems of water quality, and the current (1979) and emerging questions of water policy for the future.
