Lemma 15.104.20. Let $A$ be a normal domain with fraction field $K$. There exists a cartesian diagram

\[ \xymatrix{ A \ar[d] \ar[r] & K \ar[d] \\ V \ar[r] & L } \]

of rings where $V$ has weak dimension at most $1$ and $V \to L$ is a flat, injective, epimorphism of rings.

Proof. For every $x \in K$, $x \not\in A$ pick $V_ x \subset K$ as in Algebra, Lemma 10.50.11. Set $V = \prod _{x \in K \setminus A} V_ x$ and $L = \prod _{x \in K \setminus A} K$. The ring $V$ has weak dimension at most $1$ by Lemma 15.104.19 which also shows that $V \to L$ is a localization. A localization is flat and an epimorphism, see Algebra, Lemmas 10.39.18 and 10.107.5. $\square$

Typo in proof: "" should be "". Also, in the statement, why discard the extra information that is a localization?

THanks and fixed here. We never use that the map is a localization.
