    Are state governments embarking on a water tranport system from flood areas to drought areas?

    It seems intuitive to develop a system to transport water from new flood zone areas to drought stricken areas.  If we can transport oil overland or by sea, it seems that we will need to do the same for water in the coming years with predictions from serious meteorologists that extreme hurricanes and flooding along with intensified snowstorms will take place. Snow last year was piled up on the East Coast while the West Coast is in a terrible drought.  Is it naive to think that a system of water transport needs to be initiated or perhaps such plans are in the works.  What have you heard?

    What an intelligent and common sense thought! But, no, I doubt that anyone is making plans to do this.
    It's weird that states have "water rights" and they don't want to share their water with anyone. Some of the state water rights are there to protect farmers, but others simply make no sense whatsoever.
    In one state, I think Oregon (not sure), it is illegal to capture rain water in a barrel even though the rain is falling on your property!
    Texas has rather severe water rights laws and we also have huge drought problems. We can only wish that flooded areas would share their water with us.

      Wow, you know a lot about State "water rights", Austinstar.  I think it's inevitable that we will have to do something, and I do think that something can help alliviate the effect of global climate change. It seems it would even out the water cycle.

      I know a little about water rights in Texas. We can't drill a well or even build a small dam for our creek because of these laws. The ranchers and farmers own most of the water rights and the state regulates all of the lakes in the state.
