The $11.2b, 30-year project is in early planning phase
I laugh because I have been saying the same thing for years. Why can't we
make a pipeline system to carry water from areas with floods to areas that need
@Midwest MomHave you ever had to experience water rationing in
Wisconson?Many of the new homes built in the West not only have 1 1/2
gallon toilets, but also have many other ecologically sound ideas built into
them, such as better insulation and solar panels.Don't you good
people in the Midwest want some our water revenue?Please, don't be so
Water is the new oil. If you want it, go where it occurs naturally. I find it
laughable that some would contemplate "saving" us from "wasting"
our periodic floods. So ... would that mean when we're not experiencing
water surplus that the "tap" would be shut off? We've
seen, in the Midwest, how you in the arid West take care of your resources.
"Waste not, want not" has become waste and waste and wanting more. I
think that's called greed. As long as the Western states continue to build
big box houses and sprawl and waste water growing lawns (trying to look like the
green that happens elsewhere naturally) you will continue to experience water
"shortages." Learn to like and live within the means of
your environment, instead of coveting your neighbor's water.
Would point out the main Missouri River originates in Montana, not North Dakota.
How did the reporter miss those first several hundred miles?
