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 should have begun decades ago. I-70 would be a perfect main trunk line.

other than for river traffic (commerce) and ecological needs, why are we letting one drop of fresh water flow into the salty seas? we have pumps and pipes and we own 99% of all needed rights of wayto get our flood waters to drought ares and replenish our depleated acquifers.. any leftovers could turn death valley into the garden of eden

Perhaps we should allow the keystone pipeline to appease the republicans just as long as canada alows us to to build a water pipeline from Alaska through canada territory to alivate water shortages an help farmers grow producitive crops for the good of all mankind

We'd better do this before we really need it. Trouble is, government can't get $#@% done anymore (mostly the GOP "No" party, because it's all about getting re-elected, not serving the public good!

I can't believe I'm seeing this. My husband and I have talked about the states that are flooding and the states that are in catastrophic droughts. The billions put aside for rescuing all of these states could be put to use in building back jobs, saving states that will flood and states that are in horrific droughts. We can build a pipeline thru Alaska for fuel. It's now time to take this action to save the United States of America. Creating jobs and taking that disaster fund and create, instead of just giving the funds for what the government knows will be given away in relief funds. Make It Count

I am already working with agricultural reps in Calif. To Kickstart a water pipeline project to deliver flood water flows via pipeline to Lake Shasta where existing conveyance systems could deliver that water to the Central valley where the nations' produce is grown. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers would be the Federal agency that would take the lead on a water resource project of this magnitude. The project authorization could be provided in the next Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) s heduled for consideration in Fiscal Year 2016. Let's do this.

Delivering water to remote areas in the southwest that are suitable for production of food through farming could help prevent an inevitable shortage of fresh, healthy food for the people of the U.S. and a shortage of water for survival as the population grows. The time to do this in now, not when there is a crisis.

We should seek evidence about the best method for transporting water and then sell bonds to the world to pay for the project. Congress won't do it.

This will NEVER fly. The Republicans will find fault. Having really full employment is bad for the economy. The republicans will say. This plan can only accomplish one thing, father erode the work ethic of this country. Anything that has the most remote possibility of raising the bottom line of the average American will be opposed by this group of elitist.

If this drought continues, the price of a gallon of water will exceed the price of a gallon of gasoline. We can survive without gasoline, but you'll only live for a few days without water to drink. Let's pay for a water pipeline that benefits everyone in California instead of paying billions for a high speed train that will benefit exceptionally few and will never pay for itself. If they can build the Keystone XL from Canada to Louisianna, then they can build a water pipeline. And if the water pipeline breaks, it will not polute the environment because it's only water.

Building a water pipeline is like the best idea yet. I've always wondered why we have "oil pipelines" and not a network of "water pipelines?" There are plenty of states literally drowning in water from rainfaill. Why can't we divert the excess to other states like California where it's desperately needed? Seriously; this is a no brainer.and common sense people.

We need to focus on making these pipelines a reality. with only one year of water left, California's drought will mean catastrophic loss for the entire country. most of our food for the entire united States is built here. FOCUS ON THIS!

Water is life. People, livestock, crops and native animals & vegetation all rely on water in some form or another to survive. Water for crops, cities and business' is an important national security issue to ensure that this county continues to be strong in the local and global economy. Droughts don't care is someone is rich, poor, black, white, asian, hispanic, liberal, conservative, religious or atheist etc, everyone is affected in some form or another is there is a drought. Building a water pipeline would create jobs, add water to areas where migratory birds could flourish, create tax right offs for property owners where the pipeline runs through their property similar to Alaska's oil pipeline, drought states that receive water would be glad to pay for it. Using BLM land pipeline routs would minimize private property rights lawsuits. This comment is coming personally from a farmer in central California dealing with this issue on a first hand basis, an area where food and fiber can be grown year round. Cheers!

Let's start now, while we still have a small supply, and think of other temporary (or permanent) ways to ease the drought. No need to say that government action and guidance will be needed, on all levels, with common grounds and bipartisan involvement. Interesting to note that no one seems to be making it headline news, yet everything in terms of this regions future depends on it. Is this the proverbial ostrich reaction (sticking its head in the sand), because we just came, and to some extent are still coming out of a recession, licking our wounds and want to feel good for a while again ? What if it doesn't wait for us ? Wake up !

I call this a flood water pipeline letter. Here it is 2015 and no one has calmed the Mississippi's flood plain. Plus the flood pipeline would of relieved California's drought put more water in areas that need water like Lake Mead.
