Los Angeles Department of Water and Power Mojave District Headquarters - Mojave CASource: Library of Congress, HAER CA-298-AA
The Public Works Administration funded the construction of the Office and Warehouse for Los Angeles Department of Water and Power’s Mojave District Headquarters. The DWP’s Mojave District was responsible for operations and maintenance of the Los Angeles Aqueduct in the Mojave desert area, between Los Angeles and the Owens Valley. The building is a fine example of the “PWA Moderne” style.
