Where there is water we can build off Earth colony's:



"The key to living on the Moon is water -- the same as here on Earth," Daniel Andrews, the project manager of the VIPER mission and director of engineering at NASA's Ames Research Center in California, said in a news release. "Since the confirmation of lunar water-ice ten years ago, the question now is if the Moon could really contain the amount of resources we need to live off-world. This rover will help us answer the many questions we have about where the water is, and how much there is for us to use."

Bet China already built dam on it.
This is spot on as a concern though it won't involve damning any rivers. However squatting on the best water sources might be a big deal. The key to the Moon rover work will be to determine how the water ice is distributed on the lunar surface. Is it spread out or is it concentrated into scattered mega deposits? If it's concentrated then it might be possible to claim the best water sources in a given area of the moon.

This would have to same effect as damning rivers and depriving those downstream of the water. And as east points out, just ask Burma, Thailand, Laos and Cambodia what they think of Chinese damns.
