Mapping of the thermal plume from once through cooling of the nuclear reactors at Indian Point Energy Center 

The Indian Point Energy Center (IPEC), owned and operated by Entergy Nuclear, uses a once-through cooling water configuration to cool its two operating nuclear reactors; this process draws water from the Hudson river via a series of intakes and returns heated water through a common discharge canal back to the river.  In support of its license renewal application, IPEC applied for a Water Quality Certification (WQC) under Section 401 of the federal Clean Water Act (CWA), the approval of which is based upon a finding that there are reasonable assurances that its operation is in compliance with applicable New York water quality standards (WQS).
