Hot Water

Not surprisingly, the wicked heat wave resulted in Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station spending some of Wednesday at 85 percent capacity "because the seawater from Cape Cod Bay, used to cool key systems, exceeded the maximum 75 degree temperature allowed under the plant's license. The situation was a first in the plant's 40-year history." By Thursday morning, Pilgrim was back at full power. [previously; Cape Cod Times]
