Water from the sky? Imagine that!

That air-conditioning units, during humid months, cause liquid water to condense out of the air was always obvious. A recent KOLD web article puts a high estimate on the amount: 2-3 gallons per hour from households, and over 500 per hour from the U of A's Marshall Building.

This is clean water, that could be potable were it filtered to remove airborne particulates, and can certainly be used to water landscaping--without draining the aquifer. Whether or not the effect is a significant contributor to the "Non-Soon" is a question I'll leave for another time.
