1500 gallon rainwater cistern that is completely separate from the well water system. That's my only storage. The well is 285' which is about 75' deeper than the river draining our valley. It's got a flow of 8 to 10 gallons a minute, And a very high static level of 60' so I added a manual Simple Pump to the wellhead, even though the well pump has a solar backup to the grid power. If you've got no water, you're looking for a new place to live!

Thumbs up

I figured as much. And answered questions I had, but did not ask.

Thx.

If you don't smell ozone, the radiation won't kill you before next week.

That was largely influenced by the amount of electricity needed to run the plants.

The extent to which the California leadership has kowtowed to the environmentalists is amazing. Shocking, really.

They've totally abrogated their responsibilities in providing for their people in favor of providing for insignificant slivers of the ecology.
