In the U.S., there are areas experiencing flooding and/or huge snowfalls.

In the U.S., there are other areas experiencing drought.

In the U.S., we have oil pipelines between many pairs of cities.

Could we temporarily use a given oil pipeline to transport water to a drought area?

@gollum,
This is a very interesting question and I'm afraid the US government hasn't thought of it yet. I hope we have someone from the government reading your post.

@gollum,
1. The pipelines are mostly privately owned. Why would they do this and lose $millions/billions in revenue?
2. You're going to contaminate millions of gallons of water making it non-potable and unusable for even most grey water practices?
