Mayors of Ventura/ Water supply history east L.A
by: Remdni Chani Snow

Oh interesting. George Chaffee and son provided running water for East L.A. around this time in Upland. The city name Upland Ca was derived from their home town Upland Nebraska. And the son later ventured to Australia. Chaffee County is also the County Boardering my family ranch in Cotopaxi Colorado. I was told I was related by marriage to The Great great Grandfather that irrigation was founded in Upland years ago. Didn't know they were the first Mayor of Ventura. Nice to know.
