FILE - This July 16, 1997 file photo shows Owens Lake, Calif., about 200 miles north of Los Angeles. A federal judge has thrown out a lawsuit filed by Los Angeles against air quality regulators who are requiring it to do more to control dust on a lake that was siphoned dry a century ago to provide water for the booming metropolis. The conflict began in 1913, when Los Angeles began diverting water from Owens Lake, which then went dry in 1926. It has since been plagued with massive dust storms and poor air quality despite efforts by the city to keep dust down. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes, File)
