The local terrestrial effects of salt aerosol drift from powered spray modules and a mechanical draft cooling tower at Turkey Point, Florida were evaluated through field and controlled exposure studies. Indigenous vegetation, soil and fresh water were sampled over a year long period to acquire pre-activation baseline data and to provide for the assessment of possible environmental impact of salt aerosol loading from the test cooling devices. No measurable effects attributable to salt aerosol emissions from test cooling devices were detected on indigenous plants, soil or fresh water sampled during or following operation of the test cooling tower/spray modules. Full-term effects and salt aerosol tolerance levels of a cultivar plant, bush bean, were examined by controlled exposure to a simulated sea-salt aerosol at concentrations representative of the Turkey Point test site.
