Friday Futurecast: Water

We are a country that is a continent wide. It’s a bit mind-boggling to think about it, really. But this puts us in an enviable position. With ever-shifting weather patterns, we can take advantage of rain on one coast and shift the water to the middle or the other coast.

Better yet, we can continually recharge the Ogallala Aquifer which waters our breadbasket and keeps another dust bowl at bay.

While many water-plentiful states envision a giant straw sucking their lakes and rivers dry, this isn’t a clear vision of reality.

We’re talking excess precipitation, you know the kind that overflow riverbanks, causing floods and damage. Efficiently removing this water will save lives and money, and create jobs in local economies.

This water isn’t pristine as there are abundant contaminates on our roads. In winter, some of that salt could be reclaimed and reused by local governments.

Water pipelines could be laid in parallel with oil pipelines with the amazing benefit of not creating an environmental disaster if there should be a spill.

We can create recreational lakes to stimulate local economies via tourist destinations, and, most of all, by effectively managing our water supplies, we can maintain our food production supplies during periods of drought.

Until next time.
