I think I heard yesterday that the pump needed was 20 HP.
As to water availability over the long term, Morgan explained that one of the existing wells could be deepened ($$$$) and the bigger pump ($$$$) would service the town's needs over the SHORT TERM. He is committed to achieving these goals in the next short while.
Over the long term, there are consumption issues - growth of town, Four Seasons Hotel, climate change. The Ejido is planning to establish a water committee (Mexicans only!!!) to study a long1term solution. This includes new wells, storage tanks on the mountain and conservation methods (I think I made the last one up).
The President of the Ejido proclaimed that the Ejido is committed to the long-term solution.
There was a general acknowledgement that the Municipality would likely assume control of the water utility. (Is this good or bad???)
