Waco Trib -Energy Also uses VAST AMOUNTS OF WATER-Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Glen Rose

29 June 2009 at 3:34:40 PM

Referred to an article last week in the Waco Trib in which the sheer volume of water that the Brazos River Authority wants to use was discussed, for the 2 proposed nuclear reactors in Somervell County.

Editorial about how running dry on water will ruin Texas's potential for growth

Central Texans should be both heartened and just a little scared about Trib staff writer J.B. Smith’s report on the Waco-based Brazos River Authority’s plan to provide gargantuan amounts of water from the Brazos River Basin to serve two nuclear reactors that Luminant wants to build in Glen Rose. They would use 55 million gallons a day — far more than the city of Waco uses daily.

The BRA, which stands to make millions, tells us that it has plenty of water, enough to meet the needs of an expanded Comanche Peak power plant and all downstream users.

But others worry about Texas-sized droughts, such as the scorcher that devastated us for seven years back in the 1950s. They fear the BRA could wind up compromising itself and much of Texas if its long-range projections about climate, industrialization and population growth are wrong.

San Antonio's Current also discusses this, along with the high cost of energy.
