We can now infer a little more about the ultra-secret NSA facility in Utah, based on its projected water consumption. The facility will require as many as 1.7 million gallons of water per day to operate.

SALT LAKE CITY, UT (Catholic Online) - Although it will be some time before the facility requires the daily 1.7 million gallons of water it is projected to need, regional planners are already looking for ways to accommodate the thirsty facility.

"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," Jordan Valley River Conservancy District assistant general manager and chief engineer Alan Packard was quoted by KSL News in Utah.

According to KSL, Packard said the amount of water to be used would be no different than that required by "soft drink bottling plants."

However, it should be noted that soft drink plants produce nothing but beverages for constant human consumption. In the high-desert climate of Utah, water is a scarce and precious resource. There's a reason Utah does not host very many beverage bottling plants.

The nearby community of Bluffdale is hungry for jobs and the economic growth the facility is expected to bring, so they're happy to exchange the water for money.

The water of course, is needed to cool the computer systems that will be warehousing and archiving all the world's data, including yours.

For its part, the city is planning to develop new conservation plans and develop new sources to ensure it is prepared for the growth the facility will bring.

The NSA facility is expected to go online in October, however a source exclusive to Catholic Online says the facility has already been online for over 18 months, and is much larger than advertised.

Certainly, the consequences of the facility are going to be much larger than most realize.
