    Skywalker:

    You wrote - Cadiz proposes to produce 50,000 a-f per year. That's about 16,000,000 gallons per year or 30 gallons per minute.

    You ought to check your math. 50,000 acre-feet per year is about 16 Billion gallons per year vs. the 16 million that you posted. Therefore, the flow rate is 31,000 gal/min.

    So, using your Glendale example of $ 1.7 million per 100 gpm, will mean a cost of $ 1.7 million times 310 or $ 527 million. Let us assume that there are tremendous economy of scale opportunities of 50%, then you are still looking at a capital cost of at least $ 260 million - just to remove the chrome - 6.

    FWIW, I don't see the chrome - 6 issue as a deal killer. Cadiz will have to remove / reduce the chrome - 6 concentration, period. It is only a question of money.
