Thirsty power plants are spurring engineers to consider some unusual strategies to keep the lights on, like using the water that’s pouring down drains and toilets.
What will it take to convince the federal government that water and energy are tightly intertwined...and therefore their respective planning and policy must be closely linked?
While working as a contractor at a Long Island-based power plant, Rob Weltner witnessed firsthand the devastating impact that the facility's outdated cooling water intake system can have on aquatic life.
Fracking - the hottest topic on the energy front - is now on fire with the arrival of summer. The month of June saw three bans, one ban reversal, a disclosure law and gift to the gas industry.

It’s official (or as close as it can get): Oil and gas operations, like those involved in hydraulic fracturing (fracking), can cause earthquakes, according to upcoming study from the highly esteemed U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
Although unseen, millions of gallons of water go into the products we buy and use, which makes consumer awareness an important step towards water conservation.
Many people know that power plants are a major source of air pollution and greenhouse gasses; however, few are aware that many of those same plants kill and injure fish and other aquatic life.
