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 WOULD RATHER SEE US SPEND MONEY FOR A WATER PIPELINE THAN TO SPEND THE MONEY FOR AN OIL PIPELINE. BOTH WOULD HELP WITH THE JOBS BUT I SEE THE WATER NEED NOW MORE THAN EVER. REMEMBER FOOD IS WHAT FEEDS US NOT OIL. CONGRESS GET YOU'RE HEADS OUT OF YOUR*****AND THINK OF THE BIGGER PICTURE NOT LINING YOUR POCKETS WITH OIL MONEY.

Surely water pipelines would be much less expensive than desalinization plants. It's time to get to work on them, NOW.

Instead of Oil Pipelines we need to be focused on Water Pipelines that would supply the west coast and other drought stricken states. Food and agriculture are more important than building oil pipelines.

Building a water pipeline to California is the ONLY solution to saving the wilderness areas, the agricultural areas, and the water supply to residents. There may be more drought years, so "bandaid" programs will have no effect, and the millions or billions spent on these will simply be futile. The federal government has a responsibility to all citizens of the U.S. to ensure that drought-stricken states will be provided some form of permanent relief, i.e., a continuous SUPPLY of water, which is necessary for all forms of life - not only for humans, but for wildlife and for flora. And, if there is no relief, what will happen when wildfires occur? - from where will the water come to combat these and to save lives and homes? A water pipeline is certainly more important by far than an oil pipeline - money and profits for big business (i.e., for an oil pipeline) should be of considerably less importance than quality of life. The federal government provides relief for floods, earthquakes, and other natural disasters. Prolonged drought and its serious, adverse impact on the environment is certainly a "natural disaster."

... Or... your nation (and all the people living in it) could finally start living a more responsible way of life by saving ressources (water, oil, power), driving more economical cars (maybe walk a few meters instead of using the car), trying to get more energy from renewable sources, eat less meat. With that you will save your country and more important the whole planet you are living on.

Yes, it would cost as much as the Iraq war, but we would be a stronger nation with the pipes.

Louisville, KY is flooding while California is drying up. (Boulder, CO flooded in 2013 while California was...again, drying up.) We have the technology to pump a zillion barrels of crude across state lines: why not life-giving water instead?

If we can build a pipeline from Canada to south Texas for oil why can't we do the same for water. A pipeline from Washington or even Canada to end at the California aqueduct.

I have been saying this to family and friends for the last year-Why hasn't this been created years ago? Our country has been built on supply and demand. The demand is here, now let's build the supply.

I'm disappointed to read that some experts believe that it's not feasible nor practical to build an interstate water pipeline from the East to the Western US. I'm grateful that they didn't have that belief during the depression when they built Hoover Dam. Hoover Dam now makes a profit and provides necessary water for cities and agriculture for the West. We could save FEMA millions of dollars of damages keeping the Mississippi River from overflowing. Large reservoirs could be dug adjacent the the Mississippi and that water could be pumped west along the interstate highways. The world's population will continue to grow and the Western US could continue to meet the demand for additional food products. We could put the iron belt back to work building steel pipes and make our deserts fertile lands for agriculture. We're lucky that in the 1950's that pessimists didn't keep the interstate highway systems from developing. Let's move forward again and be rid of this era of pessimism.

Makes sense, and is much safer than piping in oil. It's just water.
