No point in pumping or piping until you've got the supply (reservoirs) sorted out. And that's where the NIMBYs (Not In My Back Yard) will object.

Sadly I fear that, while technically possible, such a pipeline will never get built:
The "tree huggers" don't want it as doing so would disturb the balance of nature.
The right don't want it as it would cost money to build for no instant return over the years it would take to build
The left don't want it as it would line the pockets of the rich
The NIMBYs just simply don't want it.

Meanwhile those at the "receiving" areas argue about which of the many possible destinations should be first, and those in the "donor" areas argue about which should be the first to give water to where it's wanted....


We see the same arguments in just about every country where there isn't a totalitarian government and there is a water surplus & deficit situation.

Here's one very creative and desperate use of piping water to where it is needed. Also, for this example, for when it is most needed:


Aberdeen scientists develop ice stupas for Himalayan water crisis
wrote:
... Most villages in the region experience acute water shortage particularly during the months of April and May, according to the ice stupa project.

This is the time when people are [trying] to water newly planted crops. By mid-September there are small streams flowing, but by this time they are of little use as farming activity comes to an end.

The problem has worsened as a result of climate change, which is causing natural glaciers to disappear...



That's a desperate way to go...

Better is for us to stop polluting our atmosphere to hell!!


All on our only one planet!...

Volunteers? They don't even give to charities or churches!

You could get your water from the Missouri River. ;-)

Iowa Sues Sioux City for Cheating on Wastewater Reports, Fines Could Be in Millions.

The Iowa Attorney General's Office announced Friday a lawsuit against the state's own Sioux City over allegations that the city manipulated the results of wastewater tests for several years, proposing a penalty system that could fine the city millions of dollars.

From at least 2012 to 2015, employees at the plant allegedly increased the amount of chlorine they would put in the water to kill bacteria on days they tested for E.coli to mislead the Iowa Department of Natural Resources about the effectiveness of the plant.

A typical day saw about 2.5 gallons of chlorine per hour put into the water, while on testing days that amount spiked as high as 120 gallons per hour, according to the Des Moines Register.

The lawsuit alleges that during the period, the plant inadequately disinfected water that passed through the facility into the Missouri River, potentially endangering people and wildlife that came into contact with the water.

The Iowa Attorney General's Office said in the statement that the lawsuit aims to stop the plant from continuing to violate water safety regulations. The lawsuit also proposes a penalty of as much as $5,000 per day for every day the facility violated the standards, which over several years could amount to millions of dollars.

The city continues to violate permit limits for ammonia and chlorine, the lawsuit said. The city's attorney, Guy Cook, disputed that assertion and said people and wildlife were never in any danger from the wastewater. Any past problems with the plant were caused by "the rogue conduct of two former employees," and no other city officials were aware of that conduct, he said....
Just more greed and corruption at work.
