Got Drought? Get the Interstate Water Distribution System

This is the 21st century and we are still dealing with droughts and floods. We have the technolgy, we can do something about droughts and floods.

For thousands of years humans have been able to take water from one place and bring it to another. This was accomplished with tunnels, canals and aquaducts.

That said, my proposal is to connect existing water systems- rivers, streams, lakes, etc. using technology we already have. To accomplish this we can dig canals, install tunnels, pipelines and aquaducts.

This way when one section of the USA is dry/ in a drought stage, the sections of the USA that have rain can share that bounty with those who are less fortunate.

Another advantage of my system is that it could, if applied properly, alleviate flooding.

It will also put many Americans back to work. The only issue is where is the money going to come from?

One solution is the 1%- it would be an investment. They pay now and then we ante up when when we pay our water bill.

Phase 1

Phase 1 would set up the country in zones, and to install controlled spillways along major rivers and their tributaries in those zones, starting with known flood zones of populated areas.

These spillways would lead to (holding) reservoirs for future use including redistribution to/ from another zone (Phase 2).

We need to refill our aquifers- the Ogallala aquifer, is one of the largest systems in the world and I am sure she could use a good drink. And the Ogallala feeds a great deal of farmland, which feeds us.

Another thing to think about is if the ice sheets melt and ocean levels rise, we could mediate that rise by controlling how much water flows back via our river system by using these spillways to divert some of that flow.

Diversion rate = ice sheet melting rate

We can even use the wind and sun to power the flow up hills and mountains. More jobs.

This way, instead of continually reacting to floods and droughts, we can control the horizontal. We can control the verticle. We can change the focus- we can increase the freshwater fish population and farm land.

We can put America back to work and get us out of this ridiculous debt.

Write to your congress-people and Senators and tell them of this plan. If enough people speak up perhaps they will listen. But you can't win the lottery if you don't play...

    Not enough attention lately? You've already proposed this and no one thought it was well thought out last year. Why is this different?

    Great, I get to kick around an attention-whore of a clown-

    You've already proposed this

    Yes, I know. It is very relevant these days so I brought it up again.

    no one thought it was well thought out last year

    It is an IDEA, dipshit. That must be what has you confused as you have never had an original idea in your life.

    And it is a great idea, so that would definitely leave you totally baffled.

    Why is this different?

    What isn't different is your belligerent and ignorant spewage.

    YOU are a clown. And not even a good clown. Meaning you have nothing to say about engineering projects, nor solutions.

    Great idea! I've wondered about something like this myself. Not sure of the feasibility of it, but it doesn't sound any more daunting than the interstate highway system must have (actually less so), and we were able to achieve that.

    Thanks Randy- We could do it without any problems and it would benefit the entire country.

    Its a great idea. Any progress in the last 3 years. This will be the best year to promote because of the severe drought in the west and likely flooding form the heavy snow in other areas.

    Actually I was getting ready to start writing letters- even one to the President for good measure.

    To me this is a no-brainer- so is desalination plants- All coastal States should be required to suck sea-water, clean it and store it for where it is needed. OK that might be overkill...
