Why don't you just sell your house and move?

Isn't that a good thing? Free river!

Assuming the river would be identical in depth and breadth to the Panama canal, if every man, woman, and child in the US picked up a shovel they would need to move 305 cubic feet of dirt each. So if we all just moved 1 cubic foot of dirt per day, we could pull this off in a year.

Mostly for social reasons. We definitely have the technology and resources.
