First to Review

While visiting the Yuma Quartermaster's Depot I noticed a massive amount of water appearing out of nowhere behind the park. What I was not aware of was the water seen bubbling out of the ground is actually the Yuma Siphon created in 1912 to bring fresh water into Yuma for farming and public consumption. The Siphon is over 1000 feet of piping that lets the water flow through the pipes under the Colorado River. I don't do the science of this engineering feat justice, so you might want to read about it yourself.
