I was thinking, that in the future, when we aren't so dependant on oil, we can replace all the oil and gas pipelines with water pipelines. I saw all those stories about flooded towns and over flowing rivers. But, also all those towns in the west with dried up lakes and such. Too bad we can't pump out a couple cubic kilometers of water from the river and into Lake Meade and all the other areas that need it.
