  • In 1983, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PGandE) biologists began a study designed to develop a macrofouling control program for the Diablo Canyon Power Plant. Preliminary studies indicated that heat treatment was best suited to the DCPP site. The optimal heat treatment strategy would minimize the number of heat treatments per year, maximize biofouling control, and minimize potential environmental impacts. The study consisted of a laboratory determination of the themal tolerance of major… CONTINUE READING
