  • Water from reservoirs will be pumped into boilers
  • Geothermal energy will be used to power boilers,
    converting the water into steam

64
  • Steam will be transported under pressure to
    turbines beneath Geothermal Mushrooms for
    auxiliary energy generation

65
  • The heated water and steam will flow through
    condensers integrated with the geothermal
    mushrooms, bringing the water to a consumption
    level temperature

66
  • Cooled water will be transferred to large holding
    tanks underground at the tops of the hills
  • Static pressure from the tanks will be used to
    pressurize the cities water lines and distribute
    water to the city

67
  • Excess steam will be dispersed via vents
    throughout the city environment to aid fog
    collection systems

68
  • In any method of water distribution energy is
    needed
  • With reliance on local water sources external
    energy will need to be applied for distribution
  • By utilizing geothermal energy beneath the city
    to move water into an advantageous position for
    distribution, electricity can be generated to
    power city
  • Two uses for energy, water distribution and
    electricity generation
  • The energy was going to be used to move the water
    anyway, whether turned into electricity first,
    then power the water distribution system, might
    as well go direct and get a two for one
