    I remember when Washington was going to sell us water down a pipeline....then they had a severe drought and told us to pound salt.

    What's so far fetched about that?

    Look how they stole water from the Delta for the Delta Mendota Canal, California Agueduct to divert water to the San Joaquin valley and Southern California for there water needs and there still working on sending more water south.

    Why not run the same kind of canals from the Columbia River through Oregon? About the same distance, probably wouldn't need to be the same size wise and would probably fulfill Oregon's water needs and solve the Klamath problem?

    Desalination will soon be the answer for places like La and SF close to the ocean just need the facilities. Personally that’s something id like to see tax dollars wasted on at least the rest of the state might have some water.

    Massive desalination plant in LA and run the aqueduct pumps backwards to pump it back north

    If they don't fix the ocean problem soon they will be nothing but a cesspool and be so polluted they will never be able to desalinate.

    For you guys talking about pipeline, forget about it!

    #1 - Extrapolating the cost of the twin tunnels to the Columbia would make the project cost $250 Billion. Tunneling to the Great Lakes would be a Billion $$$. Aint gonna happen.
    #2 - Do a little research about those rivers. THEY DON'T HAVE ANY EXTRA WATER! Nobody does!

    It won't matter in a few years as all of the low basins will fill with sea water when the polar ice caps melt. Al Gore said so and AOC double downed on it.

    So there you go...........

    Why not dream big?...How much do you think the Delta Mendota, California Aqueduct system cost?....Not pipelines, but cement canals, still expensive..... There spending trillions and trillions on non essentials, Illegals, South America....Those canals are a drop in the bucket compared to what there spending these days.

    My Dad used to say dream in one hand and chit in the other and see which one gets fuller faster. He also said that for "hope", "wish".......

    Old timers have a saying for everything like that. Good old days!

    So dreams won't solve the issues. Money will. Kevin is just being a realist. Farmers and AG guys are realists as they understand the forces at play.

    Don't worry though because Biden has your back and will solve all these issues.................:eek:
