Engineered Design of SSC Cooling Ponds

  • James E. Bear


The cooling requirements of the SSC are significant and adequate cooling water systems to meet these requirements are critical to the project’s successful operation. The use of adequately designed cooling ponds will provide reliable cooling for operation while also meeting environmental goals of the project to maintain streamflow and flood peaks to preconstruction levels as well as other streamflow and water quality requirements of the Texas Water Commission and the Environmental Protection Agency.
