If the Romans could send water by means of an aqueduct to places that need water miles away, surely the United States, which by means of space stations can probe areas millions of light years away, can get water from areas in the south that have too much water to places in the southwest that are fighting forest fires, thereby helping both areas financially.
This can be done by first sending through tributaries to a powerful pumping station which can send the water upwards to a strong reinforced steel structure. It would of course involve some additional steel structures that are increasingly lower to the ground.
It would also help to bring peace on earth, and good will among humankind. This is worth doing.
