  1. Great article! But I have seen first hand what a full Lake Mead and a full Lake Powell look like. They are both on the verge of becoming “dead pool” meaning no longer being able to generate electricity…and eventually unable to supply water. Desalinization and a Federal water balancing pipeline is do-able!…expensive but doable! (no more expensive than the friggin’ Bullitt Train to nowhere! And, there is ALWAYS money available!
    There are parts of the country that flood every year but through a complex “engineered” matrix, water could be pumped to the needed areas and RE-FILL THE IMPORTANT RESERVOIRS! Also, a program like this could put the pipeliners (laid-off when Biden stopped the northern oil pipeline)back to work…and just think, a water leak is NOT like an oil leak! Its just water. The most important thing is WATER and the Governors and the President are completely ignoring it! Tons of money has been spent on Homelessness, and I get it but its been ineffective. This water-balancing-system would be measurably effective! Where is Mulholland when we need him?
