City Water, Power & Light

City Water, Light and Power of Springfield, IL operates 4 coal-fired steam turbine generators.  In 2015, CWLP contacted Pacific Netting Products to help them meet the requirements set forth by The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) section 316(b) of the Clean Water Act.   316(b) provides standards so that water intake structures minimize their adverse impacts on fish, fish eggs, shellfish and other marine life.  Pacific Netting Products engineered, built and installed a barrier net that not only helped CWLP achieve regulatory compliance, but simultaneously  improved power plant efficiency by keeping internal debris screens clean and eliminating plant shutdowns due to reduced coolant water intake. 

The project at CWLP is a perfect example of how easy it can be to resolve 316(b) issues at smaller facilities without breaking the budget.  Further, improving the environment while advancing operational efficiency is a benefit to all.
