Power Plant

Here’s another view of the snowy morning from last week, with steam rising off the power plant over there on the horizon.

Interesting things about the power plant:

  • It is the largest natural gas fired power plant in Texas.
  • The plant uses 3 million to 5 million gallons of recycled water (treated sewage effluent) from the City of Lubbock each day for cooling and other vital plant purposes. Use of the sewage effluent helps save fresh water for other uses. Also it is a zero discharge plant, which means no process waters leave the site. Cooling water from the plant is reused for irrigating grass and forage on nearby farmland.

And so ends Utility Education Day here at One Day | One Image. Thanks for being here.
