    It does not have to be perfect, I doubt that neither Redcloak nor Xykon would mind a few hundred or even thousand dieing each month due to the bad situation they are in.

    "Cannot be done" is a very strong claim in a RPG-Fantasy like setting, especially if Redcloak has access to a daily or weekly Gate spell to the Elemental Plane of Water. He can turn entire acres of desert into lakes if he wishes to.
    (A 20 ft disk is 29,22 m, assuming a flow of 1 m per second (from the elemental plane of water this is not too far fetched, that is 30 m per second, and he has a duration of some 17ish rounds (rounds per level, each round is six seconds).
    Redcloak can get ~3000 tons of water per cast - I doubt water is an issue at all )
