How much does AC produce in Vegas? You can't drink it, but...

Quote:

Washing windows and tiled floors. A/C condensate is also the logical choice for outdoor chores like washing patio floors and garden paving, your car, and garden furniture.
Flushing toilets.
Washing clothes, especially delicate hand-washables.
And plants like it. Whether you have a few potted plants on a sunny windowsill or an entire vegetable garden, go ahead and water your plants with a/c condensate. We have several of our units dripping right into the garden.

The Hall of Unverified Claims is a vast place with many shelves.

No private insurer will offer a policy on flood damage. This is why the Federal government offers the National Flood Insurance Program.



I live in Florida and where I live there is lots of water running through the city. Almost everyplace requires private flood insurance if you have a mortgage.

There is one threat which cannot get insurance for -- and it's not space aliens or meteors wiping out your home.

That one threat is a nuclear meltdown. No one offers that insurance.

A flying saucer crashing into your house can be insured, but not a nuclear reactor melting down.



Yes, and no.

Yes, no private company offers a homeowner the opportunity to buy a private insurance policy to insure against a nuclear accident.

No, that does NOT mean there is no coverage.

The Price-Anderson Act set up a mandatory requirement that all reactor owners contribute toward a pool to provide a fund to pay out damages in the event of a nuclear accident.

The Act prohibits private insurers from offering private coverage, presumably because it is not deemed to be necessary.

Automobile "comprehensive" physical damage coverage covers flood damage. (In the policy coverages section called "collision" and "comprehensive.")

Mobil Homeowners Insurance, I believe, covers flood damage, at least it used to be one of the standard coverages.

There is some discussion about the aqueduct idea -- Mississippi River water to the Colorado River.

Apparently there are no cost estimates. Has anyone seen any cost estimates?

Yes, lets rob Peter to pay Paul.
The cost is very likely prohibitively expensive since you have to also account for possible water rights downstream of the inlet.
