Description
In 1955, the Feather River Project Association (FRPA) was incorporated as a not-for-profit, non-partisan educational association to serve the public interest of Californians in the areas of water resource development and water conservation. The collection documents such issues as the future development of California's water resources, water rights controversies, and the California Water Plan as it has been revised through legislative action from 1900 until the early 1970s. It contains annual reports, articles of incorporation, board of directors' agendas and minutes, conference agendas, minutes, statements, contracts, correspondence, financial statements, membership applications and lists, legislative circulars, newsletters, position reports and statements, published reports, and resolutions.
Background
During the early 1950s, the California Department of Water Resources was created to develop a plan of action toward solving California's water problems and make recommendations to the state legislature. By 1955, the Department of Water Resources had completed its research and published a working document, known as the Bechtel Report, and began implementing the revised California Water Plan.
