Methods are described which are either currently applied or commercially available to reduce the pollution impact of blowdown from large cooling systems (recirculating rates > 500 cfs). Treatment equipment descriptions, capabilities and compatibilities are discussed. Where appropriate, broad ranges of both capital costs and operating expenses are provided. The described methods include (a) the application and design of closed-cycle cooling systems, (b) makeup water treatment, (c) recirculating water treatment, (d) mechanical treatment, and (e) blowdown treatment and/or disposal.
