An “interstate water system” could fix the West’s water woes

I know we've talked a little about this but what's stopping the US from doing this? Why not do it?

The Great Lakes states have a pact that the water in those lakes cannot be siphoned off for other states.

Get your own damned water!

How am I a troll? It’s the truth about the Great Lakes. They’re never….and I mean NEVER going to allow it.

Also, R2, I’ve never before commented on this subject on DL. Don’t be such a knee jerk nut.

Hundreds of billions of dollars so that assholes in the desert can have lawns? FTFU, OP

The Colorado river leases it’s water to Las Vegas and Phoenix. It’s starting to run low. Those cities are absolutely fucked. Don’t build a city in a desert with no water and then bitch when no one wants to share. Move.

How many fucking threads on DL have you started about this that you can spot anti water pipe to California trolls?

It often leads to hijacking resources from private proberties and Native American govt's land....

and of course, overriding those treaties that allow ranchers and farmers to use public resources... but there are some in govt that would prefer if we would get most of our meat and produce strictly overseas. Allegedly this is going green and nothing to do with their foreign investments.

^ living in a state where they sell these resources. . .

the cost on the citizenry as such

we're charged for other people's usage

particularly during the summer.

same goes to electric.. which is also largely water generated here.

And they've gone as far is instituting fees for those of that use alternative renewable energy, long gone are the days we could sell it back to the govt and instead pay the averages of the costs of what they claim we would be using during peak periods if we were still plugged into water/electric/gas.
