Mark Twain once said, "Whiskey's for drinkin'. Water's for fightin' over". The allocation of this scarce resource always has been and always will be a major economic and political issue in this state. The US Army Corps of Engineers built this facility in Sausalito. It's a 3D mock-up of the entire San Francisco bay area, used to simulate what proposed water projects would do to the water flow. This was created long before computer simulations, and is still in use.
