Are there any Aussies around? My understanding is that Australia has been desalinating ocean water for 5 plus years and it's going well. Just from a quick google search it looks like they have a couple of dozen plants and even have things like Desalination festivals. I know that big organizations are rigid but damn...there is the Pacific Ocean right there and the technology exists...get on that California. Stop doom and gloom mongering, let's create some fresh water and jobs.

Hrm.

I woke up to this on the radio, this morning:

Are we really that short?


More secrets, more water? The NSA data center in Bluffdale could require as many as 1.7 million gallons of water per day to operate and keep computers cool. Initial reported estimates suggested the center would use 1,200 gallons per minute, but more recent estimates suggest the usage could be closer to half that amount.

“Our planning is anywhere from 1,000 acre-feet per year to 2,000 acre-feet per year, and that represents – if it was 1,000 acre-feet per year, that would be about 1 percent of our total demand,” said Jordan Valley River Conservancy District assistant general manager and chief engineer Alan Packard.


Now, THAT may be worth looking into.


Oh my friggin' heck...well there goes MY water!!!
