Many Southern Californians expressed little sympathy for drought-weary Santa Barbara as water rates tripled, lawns turned brown and vegetation withered and died. Santa Barbara deserved its fate, critics of the city's water policy said. Residents had the chance to obtain an additional water supply in 1979, but rejected it when they voted against tying into the State Water Project, partly to control growth. Now residents have another chance--a final chance--for state water.

Sometime in 1994, if all goes according to schedule, giant earthmovers and cranes will be busily at work building a 42-mile water pipeline from Vandenberg Air Force Base in northern Santa Barbara County to Lake Cachuma, near the city of Santa Barbara. By the time it's completed and state water is being relayed to Santa Barbara around mid-1996, the project, including a water-treatment plant in San Luis Obispo County, will have cost about $120 million.

When Jeff Bozarth retired after 20 years as a police officer and signed up as a park ranger here last spring, he knew what to expect and relished every bit of it. Hidden in the folds of the Central Coast mountains, Cachuma Lake featured the largest campground in Santa Barbara County and one of the area's most popular outdoor playgrounds. Here, Bozarth knew, was 190,000 acre-feet of crystalline water that splashed into clay washes and lapped at primeval rock formations. There would be bobcats, wild pigs, migrating grebes who acted out an elaborate courtship dance.
