This report describes the approach and technical base that have been used by EPA's National Thermal Pollution Research Program for reviewing those portions of Environmental Impact Statements (EIS's) relative to the engineering aspects (including economics) of cooling water systems for thermal power plants. Techniques and data are provided to enable the EIS reviewer to make sound judgements concerning the adequacy of both the cooling water system selected for the power plant and the EIS comments on that system. Literature citations are provided to direct the reviewer to additional and more detailed information. Information and discussions are provided on cooling system configurations, operation, environmental effects, and costs. Consideration is given to the intake as well as the discharge.
