I just realized that's happening in Texas. I know we can't see the future, but maybe that's not the best place for it...

Or, do you know, is this clock being built in a way that (hopefully) requires no maintenance?

West Texas is pretty remote, some of the most uninhabited land in the Continental United States. Conveniently far removed from fault lines as well.

It does require occasional maintenance, I believe, but it isn't much more than a dozen men would have to tend to once every decade or so.
