Why don't they pump water from the Red River into the Cane? And will farmers stop pumping water into their fields?

No farmers will not stop pumping water into their fields until the crops are made for the year. Why do you want them to stop? They have to make a living. You know what? The streets you are driving your vehicle down are being torn up. Why dont you stop driving your car down them and lets save the streets. I am so tired of people complaining about farmers. I get so aggravated when people get on here, the tv and in the paper talking about farmers. Like last week when they were complaining about dust blowing across Williams Avenue. Thats not the farmers fault. Yeah he may have plowed the field and didn't plant it right away. You cant plant if there is no moisture in the ground. But you have to get the field ready in case it does rain so you can go in and plant after the rain. People are idiots. Stop complaining about farmers. By the way, that field was there long before those people moved to Williams Avenue. You don't like living around a field? Move. The field was there first. They didnt make the field next to your home. You made your home next to their field. I believe some of you people think that farmers live just to make people mad by driving their tractors down the road, irrigating their crops and plowing their fields. You are wrong. They farm because its in their blood. Its what they are born and raised to do. Its how they make a living for themselves and their families. So give them a break, they are farming for you too.

When Cane River was made when the red changed course it was damed so the farmers could have a water sourse. And by law they have first dibs. As they should!!
And the reason you can't just pump out of red river is because of what's in it. You stand a good chance of killing the entire river. Different types if vegetation and species of fish and other things like zebra clams. Two lakes up north swimmers can't use because of the zebra clams cut you. Plus they stick to engines and any other thing in the water. Both lakes pumped out of the red before testing. You can google any of this if you like.

are you talking about the streets that the farm equipment keeps tearing up? i was just asking if the farmers will stop using the water, since the river is soo low. do they pay for the water or is it free? btw our streets are the worst ever, but that is another subject entirely...

FYI, your car does more damage to the street than tractors do. There is more pressure per square inch of tires on the road from your car tire than a tractor tire.

you are incorrect, it it the weight of the tractor, 20,000 pounds-vs-4,000 pounds of a cars total weight, that does the damage to the roads. not the tire pressure, in that case the tire pressure on a bicycle is twice that of a car. so you are saying that bicycles cause more damage than a car or a tractor, if air pressure per square inch is the factor.

Water is precious.
Our roads are a result of corruption among the officials we elect to spend wisely the funds they receive from voters.

No you dumbass, the amount of pressure applied to the ground from a larger tire is less than the amount applied from a smaller tire.

Same thing applies to women in high heels and elephants. A woman with high heels puts more pressure on the ground than an elephant does because there is less contact are on the heels compared to the ratio of weight to area on the ground.

Cane River is getting lower and lower every day. Wait until all this flooding is over. Mother Nature has a way of taking care of itself. Stop complaining about the Farmers using a little water, it will help keep the price down when you go to the supermarket. If you want to complain, go to the polling booth and vote against the politicians (like Schwartneger, whatever)who has mistresses and the public ends up paying for them, their children and I can bet you the public was going to pay for that house.
