Great news for the Charles River!
So here is some great news. Power plants create a lot of heat and have to constantly cool things down. The Kendall power station in Cambridge is no different. As I understand it in the past they would use river water to cool things off and then when done return it to the river. However, it would still be kind of warm, maybe 100 degrees Fahrenheit +/-. So the really good news is that they are implementing new technology that will reduce the amount of warm water returning by 95%....95%!! That's a lot a percent. Here is the link to the article about this great development for all of us who play on the Charles River.
