Hey Lilkuu, and welcome to ePlaya! I'm joining the majority opinion -- everything in Black Rock City is primarily a matter of transportation. Small quantities of clean water may be sprinkled/scattered on the ground, making no puddle or mud, and that's it. Everything else must be hauled out of there.
I have long wanted to bring "tons of water" and put it to good use, such as for a swimming pool. (I have a driver license for 18-wheelers, including tankers.) In 2006 there was a large water slide, all home made, I believe. Tons and tons of water, indeed. But public pools and showers are no longer allowed, for hygienic reasons, I expect.
Now... you bring me a ton of water (250 Gallons), and I can put it to good use, and evaporate it, rather than haul it out. For 2014 I'm building a "misting booth" -- a bicycle-pedal-powered circle of misting nozzles that people can stand in or walk thru to cool off. Most of that water will evaporate before it reaches the ground. I still need to figure out the flow rate, but for now I'm figuring 30 Gallons per day, and operate each day until that daily ration runs out. So if you bring those ten 30-gallon barrels, by prior arrangement, so I don't have to make room for them in my bus, that would indeed be a welcome contribution.
I'm rambling, but I'm trying to use an actual example.
