    Biography of S. Dell Scott and the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California

    S. Dell Scott was an attorney from the Hollywood law firm Gillin, Scott, and Alperstein. He represented the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California and is one of the directors who represents the city of Los Angeles on the 49 member Metropolitan board. He is vice chairman of the board's legal and claims committee and a member of the engineering and operations committee. Source: Newsphoto from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, 2/15/80. The Metropolitan Water Discrict is a consortium of 26 cities and water districts and indirectly provides water to 24 million people in its 5,200 square mile service area. It was created by an act of the California Legislature in 1928, primarily to manage water from the Colorado River, and currently also manages water flowing from the California Aqueduct as well as other water sources. It includes parts of Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura counties. The district covers primarily the coastal and most heavily populated portions of Southern California, and large portions of San Diego, San Bernardino and Riverside Counties are located outside its service area.
