A prolonged drought in California has prompted renewed interest in proposals to transfer water from the Pacific Northwest, where rainfall is more plentiful, to the arid Southwest. While recent storms have obviated the need for water transfers at the present time, it is likely these proposals will resurface with the next drought. This Comment will examine past proposals, and discuss less expensive and less drastic means for satisfying the need for water in the Southwest.
