Quality criteria for industrial cooling waters have received little industrial attention in the context of use for source standards. The reasons given for this passivity are: (a) a history of industrial adaptation to a wide variety of water supplies without stress in most cases; (b) an awareness that other beneficial uses, both public and private, involve quality limits more stringent than those reasonably required for cooling water supply; and (c) the practical problems in isolating meaningful threshold concentrations in those multivariant technico-economic systems. The common parameters of biological growths, carbon dioxide, chlorides, dissolved oxygen, dissolved solids, iron, manganese, and pH are discussed briefly against this background.
