Not sure any place will be safe from water shortages for much longer with climate change reducing the amount of rain falling where it can be collected to avoid the costs associated with processing sea or ocean water. If TSMC really wants to secure water for its fabs, it should plan to build a desalination or waste water treatment plant instead of going to places that currently have some water reserves since those reserves may not last long.

Harris was likely correct when she predicted that WW3 will be waged over water.

Don't worry, I'm told storms are getting more frequent and more extreme, leading to mass flooding. That means there will be way too much water, not too little.
If not just use a melting glacier.

If TSMC is moving, they should be more concerned about getting out of Taiwan while there's still a "Taiwan" to get out of. Any infrastructure they build or technology they develop is just going to get stolen from them by the CCP in a few short years, and the human talent will not be granted a high enough social credit score to be allowed to work or travel abroad.
Honk Kong was a trial run, which went almost entirely unopposed. They're coming for Taiwan next.
