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 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.

It is time for America to do great things ... again. Ultimately this project will be a great boon to our economy and the Federal Budget.

The state of Texas needs to consider desalination (like Israel) to end the water woes of farmers and ranchers. A pipeline from the Gulf coast to central Texas and the crop lands of the Panhandle would employ out-of-work Texans (even depopulate our prisons).

i don't understand why this has not been done already. I live in California and conserving water is not enough, more needs to be done. When you 17 feet of snow piles in Boston, what are we waiting for.

Certainly needs to be considered as a way to address the coming water ( read as food shortage for our expanding population) shortage.

This seems like a no brainer in that we truly need this system built about 100 years ago. Please get it done.

As a cheaper fix, create a lake near frequent flood areas, and divert flood water there. Draught areas can access that water by their own means. Flood states can add a little tax $ to cover infrastructure costs and maintenance, draught can add a little tax $ for collection and distribution.

Sometimes solutions to problems evade us because they are too pedestrian. I am not an engineer or scientist. A project this size will have many challenges and it seems that a demonstration project between two likely areas that might benefit seems in order. Safeguards need to be in place so that we are not transferring water that is not excess.
