This year marked the 150th since the city of Napa incorporated. It also marked another significant if less flashy milestone — of a vitally important infrastructure system that's kept Napans hydrated all these years, and which has gained increased prominence during California's current drought. Support local news coverage and the people who report it by subscribing to the Napa Valley Register.  The city's water system has, indeed, been owned by the city for 100 years. It evolved significantly through the decades into the modern infrastructure Napans know today, a system that relies on a combination of Lake Hennessey, Milliken Reservoir and State Water Project water supplies.
