Utah politician proposes CUTTING OFF WATER supply to the NSA’s biggest data storage center in defense of residents’ rights
13 February 2014
A Utah politician has proposed getting sweet revenge for government surveillance by turning off the water supply to the NSA’s largest data-storage center in the U.S., just outside of Salt Lake City.
Republican Rep. Marc Roberts of Santaquin says his proposal, still in the works, protects state rights and also defends Utah residents’ right not to be spied on.
The $1.7 billion facility, which uses more than 1 million gallons daily to cool its computer processors, spans 1.5 million square feet on a base 25 miles south of Salt Lake City in the town of Bluffdale.
