Notes regarding Timothy Cleath possible Mindwalk
Ray- here is the brief write-up of the talk I am putting
Tim Cleath will present the water history of San Luis
Obispo County at the Natural History Museum's Mindwalk lecture series.
Tim, a local consulting hydrogeologist, has studied and worked with many
local communities and property owners on water supply development and finds
that much is gained through an understanding of how water sources have been
identified and used by missions, ranchers, railroad, mining and oil,
government/military, and land developers in the 1800's and early 1900's.
Tim will share stories about some of the interesting historical events and
characters involved in San Luis Obispo County water development. Some of
the stories revolve around divining, dam building, geothermal sources and
earthquakes. Come and bring questions that you may have always wondered
about underground water. If there is time, he may also share about some of
his international experiences in water development.
