Environmental Effects of Cooling Systems


9.8-5 Reg.1046

All steam-powered electrical generating plants, whether fired by fossil or by nuclear fuel, have a common potential problem in their need for important quantities of water which is heated and released to the environment.. Perhaps no other single environmental factor affects aquatic life a profoundly or in such a pervasive manner as temperature. Unfavorable temperature may affect reproduction growth, survival of larval forms, juveniles and adults, and all the life processes necessary to maintain a healthy state.
