LOS ANGELES, Calif., Sept. 9, 2002 -- The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) recently unveiled its "Water and Power in the History of Los Angeles" exhibit during a special viewing at Port's O'Call Village in San Pedro.

The exhibit, which is open to the public, commemorates the LADWP's century of service to the residents and businesses of Los Angeles. Admission is free and free parking is available in adjoining lots.

The exhibit chronicles the development of LADWP and provides insight into the role the nation's largest municipal utility has played in the development of the city of Los Angeles.

The display features rarely seen effects of William Mulholland and E. F. Scattergood, the fathers of the city's water and power systems, respectively; relief maps of the Los Angeles Aqueduct and Hoover Dam; historical photographs chronicling the construction of the L.A. Aqueduct; early 20th Century tools and equipment; and other extraordinary artifacts.

"I'm very pleased to welcome LADWP's historic exhibit to the Harbor area," said Los Angeles City Councilwoman Janice Hahn. "We look forward to hosting residents from throughout the City."

"The Department's employees have proven time and again, over the course of 100 years, that there is no obstacle they could not climb, and this Centennial exhibit showcases their ingenuity and dedication," said LADWP General Manager David Wiggs.

LADWP's "Water and Power in the History of Los Angeles" exhibit will be at Port's O'Call Village from August 22 through October 6, 2002, daily from 11:00 am until 5:00 pm.
