I have also read that their company can set up a temporary desalination plant for emergencies so in this case I'm sure they have one on the way just in case.
Which is better....Government or private? Oh boy...that's a good question! LOL
I like your style Keller!
So basically that plant has been running balls out, with no operational reserve (and who knows how long at that rate)...MTBF (mean time between failures) is starting to ring in my ears...or maybe that's the clocktower
