A crowd gathered, some dressed in the fashions of the past, to watch a re-enactment of the moment the Los Angeles Aqueduct gates were first opened 100 years ago, on November 5, 2013 in Sylmar, California, sending water gushing towards the city during an event marking the 100th anniversary of the opening of the 233-mile Los Angeles Aqueduct, which transports water from the Owens Valley to Los Angeles. The aqueduct started bringing water from the Owens River on the eastern slope of the Sierra Mountains to Los Angeles in November 1913 and the massive public works project is widely credited with transforming Los Angeles from a sleepy agricultural town into a modern metropolis, allowing for the city's rapid expansion.
