Bathhouse 2 Built: s or By Indian Agent Clara D. Their patience was eventually rewarded; by the s control of the bathhouse was back in Cahuilla hands. They proposed to buy materials with money laid aside from bathhouse fees, and from what the Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Company had paid for a right-of-way across the reservation. As usual, there was a delay before the OIA would agree to release the money.
Now and later it was customary that all tribal income was managed and calculated by the Indian agents not the Indians to whom it belonged. As time went on, there were more and more complaints about the condition of the existing bathhouse. Tribal income was threatened, and there were serious safety concerns. The money was apparently forthcoming.
The Agua Calientes still had control of the hot springs , but a new bathhouse was needed. The bathhouse, whatever its condition, was offensive to some members of the Palm Springs community, but it was used enough to be a source of considerable income to the Tribe. The income was traditionally controlled by the successive captains, who apparently used it as leaders would have in traditional times.
It should be pointed out that the springs were within the traditionally owned by the Kauisik lineage. No doubt other uses-— personally religious and welfare were also funded by these monies. Ellis, ever the accounting, controlling bureaucrat, was frustrated because there was no written record of either the bathhouse income or the withdrawals by the various captains. It was a complete failure to understand Agua Caliente ways on his part, an example of the many interferences due to ignorance and in prejudice against any form of Indian autonomy.
Bathhouse 3 Built: s assumed. Source: Limelight News. Previously the bathhouse in wet weather was standing in a pool of mud and in dry weather it was the middle of a sand storm. Since the Government took over we renovated the whole place. The Springs Trailer Park was served an eviction notice, and lessees of homes and other businesses on Andreas Avenue were placed on month-to-month permits.
Source: Desert Sun. Prior, discriminatory zoning only allowed for short-term leases which frightened away investors and left Indian lands undeveloped. In the bathhouse was torn down and Indian Avenue was widened. The spring was capped so as to redirect the hot spring waters from under Indian Avenue to the new Spa facility.
The Spa opened January 21, The spring is located in on alluvial fan emanating from the San Jacinto Mountains to the west, which is a very unusual place for a spring to be located because alluvial fans are typically very porous, and allow water to easily percolate into the subsurface.
Recent investigations of the spring have found that a bedrock ridge extends eastward from the mountains, and is at a relatively shallow depth of about feet under the spring. The location of the Palm Canyon Fault or some other zone of higher permeability is believe to intersect the bedrock ridge under the location of the spring, and be responsible for the spring being at this location.
The spring is believed to have been at this location for longer than the alluvial fan. The spring has been able to work through the sand and silt deposited during flood events after rain storms, keeping it from being buried. The upward movement of the water lifts the fine sand out of the throat of the spring, and the silt material packs the sidewalls of the spring orifice, maintaining the seal. The water quality is very good, somewhat better than the surrounding aquifer, with very little dissolved solids.
The most notable feature is the odor created by a very small concentration of sulfur in the water. The water has very little dissolved oxygen. The bubbles are mostly nitrogen dissolved into the water when it percolated into the ground. The water also has a slightly elevated silica and fluoride content a few parts per million above the preferred target concentrations for drinking water but much less than most hot springs would be expected to have.
Detailed testing of the isotopic composition of the water indicates the water coming out of the ground today infiltrated into the ground about 11, years ago at an elevation of about 7, feet. That would make it melting snow-pack from the last ice age from the top of the San Jacinto Mountains. The pathway the water has taken to reach the spring involved flowing to a depth of about 1, to 3, feet below sea level, where it was heated to to degrees Fahrenheit before flowing back to the surface.
The discharge water is a very stable degrees Fahrenheit, at a flow rate that ranges from about 25 gallons per minute in the spring to about 18 gallons per minute in the fall. The change in flow rate is believed to be due to a drop in hydrostatic head as water levels in the mountains decrease over the summer, and then increase as water levels recharge from winter storms and snowfall.
The pools for the original spring were a few hundred feet in diameter located at the current location of Indian Canyon Drive and Tahquitz Canyon Way. More than one orifice was reportedly present. Then, it replaced the parking lot area with an enclosed parking structure in The Rancho Mirage property has seen many updates to its amenities over the past several months.
