We turn turbine with steam and, at nuclear power plant, generate electricity.
Steam which we used for generation cools off and gets back to water, but will use a large quantity of seawater as coolant then.
When we drew water, we compare, and this coolant is released with temperature rise to the sea. We call this released seawater on*sui generally.
We carry out Surveys about influence that on*sui gives to neighboring environment and living things in the prefecture.
Diffusion Surveys of on*sui
We establish Surveys point in peripheral sea area to grasp the diffusion situation of on*sui and measure water temperature.
The quality of the water Surveys
We establish Surveys point in peripheral sea area to grasp change of the quality of the water by on*sui and carry out Surveys about hydrogen-ion concentration (pH), oxygen content of water (DO), quantity of chlorophyll -a, turbidity.
We establish Surveys point in the neighboring shores to grasp influence that on*sui gives to living thing and carry out type of animal and plant and Surveys of cover degree.
In detailed findings and past on*suichosaketsuka, please see this.
※We list annual (the summer, the winter season) findings in findings, annual report for report (from July to September) in the summer for season.
