The Zion Nuclear Station, being built by the Commonwealth Edison
Company on Lake Michigan, was designed by Sargent and Lundy of Chicago,
Illinois. The plant requires condenser cooling water flows of 3450 cfs
during midsummer. Harza Engineering Company, also of Chicago, acted as
consultants on the hydraulic design of the intake and discharge structures and determined that a model study would be desirable for checking some of the hydraulic features of these structures. The model studies were conducted at the St. Anthony Falls Hydraulic Laboratory. This report describes the studies and the results thereof.
