Drought and Flooding

Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, and Missouri are flooding.  Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico are experiencing a drought.  Africa is having the worst drought in years.

We can't do any thing about Africa.  But in this country we could build aqueducts to move water around the country and even build giant holding tanks to pump water into and save to release at later dates.  Missouri is flooding in different areas on a regular basis, and I am certain that there are areas that experience droughts on a regular basis.  In a time when our country needs jobs we could spend years building these projects and some time in the future we would benefit from the relief of flooding and the benefit of water where it is needed when there is a shortage.  Just an idea.
