The History and Future of the Sunol Water Temple

Carla Schultheis, the Watershed and Environmental Improvement Program Manager for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, spoke on the history and future of the Sunol Water Temple.


There are only three water temples in the United States. One of them is located in Sunol CA. It was commissioned by William Bowers Bourn, the fabulously rich owner of the Empire Gold mine and the Spring Valley Water Co. The Spring Valley Water Co. had a monopoly on supplying water to San Francisco.

Hear about the critical and interesting role the Water Temple has played in the development of the Bay Area. In addition, learn about the exciting new role it will be playing during the 21 Century.
