JOBS TO BUILD A WATER PIPELINE FOR DROUGHTS AND FLOODS AND SAVE BILLIONS IN CROPS, LIVESTOCK, PROPERTY!

Messages Sent So Far
Building and maintaining such a pipeline would provide long term jobs for thousand of people, save millions in livestock, crop and property loss, not to mention human suffering.

The state climatologist for Texas says the record drought of 2011 could be only the beginning of a dry spell that could last until 2020. What if this drought affects the entire Southwest and Western US?

There is an urgent need to conduct water from states suffering flooding from too much rain or snow melt to provide water to states suffering drought causing losses of entire farms, crops, and farm animals and to provide jobs to build these pipelines.

We could develop a network of interstate high-volume water pipe-lines, so water could be transmitted from areas that have too much (recently the Northeast) to areas of drought. They could be installed with relatively little disruption by flowing the right-of-ways of various Interstate Highways and/or rail lines.

Since water is non-toxic, occasional small leaks would not damage the environment. To install the system would create much-needed jobs in the US. The system could be built gradually over years to spread out the cost and job-supply. Pipe-line flow could be reversed if climate changes dictate.

Building and maintaining this pipeline would provide long term jobs for thousand of people, save millions in livestock, crop and property loss, not to mention human suffering.

I think it would be a great idea for this water project, I live in California and we conserve so much water that we no longer have grass instead we have dirt, fields of hay and alfalfa are long and gone, yet Louisiana and Mississippi as well as parts of Texas at being flooded with more water every day, the United States could become a true super power by being self sufficient and end hunger as well as homelessness by creating jobs throughout our country, it's something to think about its a good cause every one wins just think about all the lives that can be saved the disasters that can be avoided. It's the right direction for OUR Great Nation

Regarding the pipeline/aqueduct network: Incorporate pump stations which are powered (if possible) by solar and/or wind energy. If the flood waters currently in the deep South could be placed in western reservoirs, a better balance could be realized.

In light of recent flooding in Louisiana and fires in California, this would seem to make sense. Install motor/generators along the way so the downhill water flow adds power to the pumps. If using the interstates for ROW, might as well build the elevated monorail maglev down the middle at the same time.

We as Americans need to take care of our people and our country. This proposal makes sense. As a former flood victim I can say the cost our government issued to renewal is continually lost over again in flood plains. How much worse if we have no water for crops and livestock. Time we invest in our country and well being of future generations.

These are the kinds of things America used to do. They made us a great nation. Who could argue that Hoover Dam, the TVA project and the interstate highway system were not worth it. This plan would do everything they say and more. I consider it cowardice that this has not been put before Congress. Who will have the courage to suggest that it is time to do the right thing.

Whether you are conservative or liberal, this plan just make sense for all. The benefits would far outweigh the costs and would show the American people that Congress is capable of getting something done.

I have proposed this to many people and everyone believes this is a great idea. It would also provide much needed hydro-power to locations all over the U.S. Power Companies could buy this power and help to defray the cost and we could run pipes in the Interstate Highway system to bring the water to and from all communities.

If we can support building a Keystone Pipeline for more oil, we should be able to do the same thing with water supply.

As I write this 93,448,800 gallons per minute flow through the flood gates at Taledo Bend Dam in Deweyville Texas. A pipeline to help relieve flood waters like this could be relief efforts for a drought stricken community or state.

This is long over due and would come in handy NOW across the west. East to California and Places in between that have been in drought for a very long time.. New Mexico, Texas, Nevada, Arizona California. Think of how it could be helping today..

It can't cost more than constantly re building flooded areas. Take the confluence of Missouri and Mississippi rivers and send the water to the Colorado river

I agree with the project. Some caveats: The part about "building it gradually" needs to be emphasized more to Congress, and a real analysis on the cost-sharing between states (per year of construction) needs to be performed, vs. total number of years anticipated to build, and submitted to the State legislatures, because a true interstate water pipeline like this one described will cost literally trillions and will take decades to build. Its continued annual funding will therefore need to survive many state and federal congressional sessions. So all of the timeline, and cost, and cost-sharing, and budget projections will need to be well thought out (and clearly spelled out), before this project could ever get traction at the state or federal levels.

I've been talking about this for years, glad to see someone is doing more than I have. This would alleviate so many obvious problems I can't even begin to list them.
