The Central Valley, maybe. The Coast Range Mountains, the Sierra Nevada, the Tehachapi Mountains, and the Siskiyou Mountains, no.

One thing about geology, sooner or later it all gets back to seabed. Some of it quickly, some of it one grain at a time.

Is this because population centers (LA, SF) are ciphoning water from rural, upstream sources to sustain more urban areas?

Good question. Or is it irrigation for crops. I honestly don't know, but have wondered as well.
