A Ditch in Time: The City, the West, and Water by Dr. Patty Limerick
Tracing the origins and growth of the Denver Water Department, A Ditch in Time: The City, the West, and Water places this case study in the big picture of regional and national history. Written in a lively style and enriched with photographs and maps, this book raises questions of consequence about the complex relationship among cities, suburbs, and rural areas, the crucial role of engineering in shaping the West, the unexpectedly entrancing workings of governmental agencies and bureaucracies, and the varying roles of contention and cooperation, litigation and negotiation in the control of the West’s water.
