UK Prepares to Inject Ancient Fault


They plan to continue to 6,500ft, where the temperature is expected to be 82C.
The water’s high salt content makes it unsuitable to put directly into heating systems, but its geothermal energy will be harvested and used to warm clean water.
The water fell as rain on the Northumbrian hills thousands of years ago before seeping along a major crack in Earth’s crust called the Ninety Fathom Fault.

Yeah!  This is right in the middle of the city!  We'll soon have some interesting news as they replace that silicon-saturated water with nice fresh water.  Good luck to them!   :)
