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.

Why don't you tell the government to build an XL pipeline, to bring fresh water to drought areas of America ? Desalinate sea water from the GULF . 6 to 8 more years of this ???? The Dust bowl cost 10 billion, how much would a water pipeline cost ?

Great idea! Will put people back to work, help with flooding & rising ocean levels & lessen flood damage & costs to repair these areas, help to prevent the emotional toll experienced by the area residents & if sent to desalination plants it can be reused for industrial, agricultural and drinking use. I have read articles about it be too cost prohibitive to do but may I suggest ways to keep costs down such as using the " national day of service" & list it as a project idea to work on for the good of the country. Students that need to do internships could be utilized as well. Utilizing our prison systems to get the manpower to get it done is another idea to get this done quickly. (They should have to earn their keep like every other American has to!)

This is something I have been thinkin for years - Investors in commodities are driving up prices so food becomes more expensive - this water pipeline would help everyone and give back to the people paying for it anyway.

It's not just area's that have too much snow melt. Why not take it further and get water from the ocean's that are rising from the polar ice caps melting. There are thousands of Polar Bears dyeing because the water's rising and they can't swim all the way to the next mass of "land".

Also this could be connected to desalination plants and then pumped to various parts of the country for industrial, agricultural and drinking use. water is especially important in renewable energy

Sounds better than a lot of what the administration has provided funds for to date. We could use the jobs. Especially ones that will last for a long time

I wondered why we haven't done this already. We can move oil across 800 miles in Alaska but we can't move flood waters from the Mississippi river to Texas?

I just did the math. A 10 ft diameter pipe pumping water at 4 mph could move 300 million gallons per day, enough to fill a lake one mile square and 15 feet deep in about ten days. I say go for it. would go a long way towards keeping flood waters from rising up north also. Homeowners up north would love it and the National Flood Insurance program would probably benefit as NOAA estimates $5-10 billion a year in flood losses. Eliminating a billion of that every year would probably pay for this pipeline.
