Chip giant Intel has found itself in conflict with farmers over lands that conceal hitherto unknown depths of water.
The Santa Clara company said that many farmers in the Rio Rancho plant, 100 miles north of a place in California called Socorro, had no right now to claim their waters.
According to local paper, The San Jose Mercury News, Intel wants to transfer the water rights to its Rio Plancho plant to agree with a Californian state engineer's estimation that groundwater could be used to make silicon chips.
Four years ago, Intel claimed it was a green company and looked after the environment and also did not pollute anything.
But as a public company it was forced to admit this suit was pending against it.
The issue seems to be, at a distance, whether Intel is a farmer or a hunter. The case continues.
