EPA is proposing regulations implementing Section 316(b) of the Clean Water Act (CWA) for new facilities (33 U.S.C. 1326(b)). The proposed rule would establish national requirements applicable to the location, design, construction, and capacity of cooling water intake structures (CWISs) at new facilities. The proposed national requirements would minimize the adverse environmental impact associated with the use of these structures. CWISs may cause adverse impact due to impingement (where fish and other aquatic life are trapped on equipment at the entrance to CWISs) and entrainment (Where aquatic organisms, eggs, and larvae are taken into the cooling system, passed through the heat exchanger and then pumped back out with the discharge from the facility).
