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.

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.

If we can build pipelines for oil, why not water. The North/Northeast has more than enough to supply at least a sustainable amount to families in the West.

I completely agree with William T. from Sandy, UT. I've been asking myself this question for years as New England gets record snowfall and doesn't have space to store the snow until it melts. And also the flooding in the Midwest that could be minimized if excess rainwater were syphoned off . We don't need KXL, build this water pipeline instead.

We, in CA, are getting Millions and Billions of dollars of money sent to us from the Federal Government, but almost none makes it to the actual farmers since there is no water and you cannot water fields with money and good intentions (there are billboards that farmers have placed up and down 99 and 5 with those comments. My hope is that people in higher power (Legislative and Executive branches) can begin planning a long term solution to the water crisis that pops up on a regular basis. The truth is that water is always around it is just not where we want it when we want it there and there is a suggested solution out there that is getting little to no attention.

This kind of project can save save animal, human and plant life, delivering clean water from areas of abundance to areas of need. It can save drought impacted areas for years to come.

This is exactly what I think our nation with a changing climate needs more than a Keystone XL pipeline. We can live without oil (sure it'd be rough), but we can't live without water. And maintenance would offer permanent jobs here in the states. California would love to have some of the excess water from the New England region I'm sure. A network would allow the flows to be reversed if needed too. This could be the greatest public help, public works project ever.

I've had this same idea for many years. I also understand that it isn't as simple as laying pipe along the interstate highway system. But, the engineering issues to me seem to be something that can be overcome. I say forget the Keystone pipeline. Water is the commodity that we need to be able to ration for the future.

I see that I'm not the only one that thinks this is an excellent idea. If oil can be done then so can water. We need jobs, water, food, and all this would be provided with a web of water pipelines. So just do it!
