Abstract:
Carolina Power and Light Co. have recently asked North Carolina to discharge water into a reservoir that is considered hotter than normally allowed for discharge. The water, to be discharged in the lake at the $1.1 billion Wake County nuclear power plant facility, would raise the temperature more than 30 degree, 25 degrees above what is allowed by the State. State biologists however, are concerned about the affect of the thermal discharges on plant and animal life in the reservoir.
