Your concerns are misplaced.

Semiconductor manufacture requires the purest of water. Intel Corp. treats and reclaims the water it uses onsite.

Counterintuitively, the famously thirsty industry can even improve the local water supply due to a focus on reclamation and purification—Intel has funded 15 water restoration projects in the Grand Canyon State with a goal of restoring 937 million gallons per year, and it expects to reach net positive water use once the projects are completed.
