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.

This is a win-win for everyone involved.States that do not have enough water would be willing to pay for it. States that have too much water could sell it. The pipeline could easily be incorporated in the interstate highway system. Large reservoirs could be built throughout the system to store excess water. Some part of the country is always being flooded so there is no excuse for not doing this.

I'm sure the issue and solution is much more complex than stated here, but we at least need to have a comprehensive assessment of what it would take to accomplish this. Do, maybe the first step should be raise funds or pass legislation for EIPR + feasibility/cost study. t's incredibly difficult to capture flood waters. And there would surely be some unintended environmental impact from the construction, but in the overall picture it seems like it would be worth it (again, though "seems" and "is" are two different things and, we need a through independent and neutral scientific evaluation.

So simple and idea seems ridiculous we haven't built one or started one in at least the last 10 yrs (EAST gets into droughts too). Shipping excess rain or other water (snow) through a say 6ft diameter pipeline could put billions of gallons of water in storage (the pipeline itself) not to mention the benefit of shipping water from places with excess to places in need. By introducing more hydration into areas experiencing drought would also affect atmospheric conditions to the east, north and south so there is an environmental impact, but it is less likely as destructive affects of a regional drought.

After moving from Palm Desert, CA to Orlando, FL and back to Palm Desert 2 months ago. Over 7 feet of rain per year in Orlando, sinkholes etc. I cannot fathom why a water pipeline to CA is not already underway. Benefits to both states.

I have often thought, why don't we in drought areas have awater pipe line from eastern us to western us? We like to build oil pipeline why not water????????

Communist China builds the largest dams and the largest bridges in the world. Yet the most powerful nation in the world, the one that set a man on moon, cannot even figure out how to use the God given resources we have in our own country. This type of project, is the type our pioneering forefathers would have dreamt up. We have more than enough water in this country it is just a matter of distribution. Water is life. Unshackle America, have vision, create, build, take water west quench their thirst and grow the country. God save our country from the small minded and self centered.

This is a project that will pay for itself over and over. We already move oil and gasoline this way.

Hopefully the slow wheels of government get to this one. Plenty of young people could be employed with long term infrastructure jobs that a project like this would create.

I do not have faith that this could ever happen, given that congress doesn't actually care about the people. They only care about oil companies and who pays them off. But I am signing this anyway in the hopes that someone might prove me wrong. This seems like such a no brainer.

We spending millions to combat flood and drought. Where's the logic? I can't believe this wasn't done years ago.

Not.sure why there's not more force behind this. Flooding in Loisiana drought in California. If it where oil we could get it moved.

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.
