California’s “wet season” officially ended with a whimper on April 1st, the last snow survey of the season showed our snowpack was only 38% of average for this time of year. That means we are heading into what is likely to be another hot, dry summer with near record low water storage in California’s largest reservoirs and not much help in snow reserves to carry us through until it rains or snows again. Thanks to efforts to improve water efficiency in urban communities, we’re in a better place than we would have been without actions to use water more wisely in our homes, landscapes, and some businesses. Pacific Institute’s recently released report, Untapped Potential, shows that our urban communities were using 32 percent less water in 2017-2019 than in 2007, even with a nine percent increase in population.
Intel Ireland last week chalked up a milestone in its $7 billion Fab 34 construction project: A team rolled in the new plant’s first huge chipmaking tool. The machine, a lithography resist track, arrived by truck at Intel’s Leixlip, Ireland, plant after a flight across the Atlantic Ocean from an Intel Oregon plant. An Intel team guides a lithography resist track into Fab 34 in Leixlip, Ireland, on Jan. 12, 2022. It is the first chipmaking tool delivered to Fab 34, which is part of a $7 billion construction project that will double Intel Ireland’s manufacturing space when it goes online in 2023. Ireland’s new lithography tool runs in conjunction with an extreme ultraviolet (EUV) scanner, a crown jewel in Intel’s manufacturing capability. The new tool provides precision coating of silicon wafers before alignment and exposure inside the EUV scanner. The wafer then returns to the lithography tool for a series of precision oven bakes, photo development and rinsing.
