The water basin under a large cooling tower can serve as a storage
reservoir to balance flows through the plant condenser system, overcoming
variations in evaporative losses and make up water availability. To use
the storage capability effectively requires that some attention be given to
the hydraulic design details of the basin and the channel leading from it
to the circulating water pump pits. This model study has been undertaken
to examine a design for that system for one of the cooling towers at the
Callaway Plant Unit of the Union Electric Company.
