    Abstract

    An ample supply of cooling water is a prerequisite for any large-scale atomic enterprise. Since presently conceived atomic power plants have lower thermal efficiencies than modern steam plants, more cooling water is required for the same electric output (Table I); also, reactor plants can be expected to be much more sensitive to the economics of cooling water supplies.
