Scope and Content
This collection is the result of Frank E. Bonner's work as a consulting engineer for four California water agencies. The collection
is divided into five series: California (General), Oakdale and South San Joaquin Irrigation Districts, Oroville-Wyandotte
Irrigation District, Richvale Irrigation District, and Sacramento Municipal Utility District. These series are further broken
down into the following subseries: General and Components. Materials under the General Subseries discuss the projects as a
whole while the materials under the Components Subseries focus on specific aspects of each project. The materials in this
collection consist of water and hydroelectric power studies, maps, designs, computations, drawings, photographs, and reports
on various constructed or proposed water developments in the Sierra Nevada.
