Crystal Geyser Olancha Plant

The source for the most popular bottled water brand in southern California is from this Crystal Geyser bottling plant adjacent to Owens Lake, a 100 square-mile lake that dried up after the construction of the first Los Angeles aqueduct. Crystal Geyser trucks drive the bottled water to Los Angeles alongside the pipeline that carries 70% of the tap water to the same place. The plant opened in 1990, and has been expanded several times since then.
