Fresh water is the limiting constraint for development in much of the United States. Devise an effective, feasible, and cost-efficient national water strategy for 2010 to meet the projected needs of the United States in 2025. In particular, address storage and movement, de-salinization, and conservation as some of the possible components of your strategy. Consider economic, physical, cultural, and environmental effects. Provide a position paper for the United States Congress outlining your approach, its costs, and why it is the best choice for the nation.
