    If they’re lucky and have some money to invest in new infrastructure, they can draw directly from water table and recharge it with water from the cooling pond, or just put intake pipes out into deeper water (near lakes).  True, there are some potential problems with that, but usually nothing that’s impossible to resolve.

    Some power facilities are involved with the installation of pipes between themselves and wastewater treatment plants, where they can draw off treated effluent in order supplement or replace their other water sources.  Of course, the treatment plants needs to be modern enough to produce sufficiently clean effluent, and effluent temperature needs to be low enough to be useful.

    I’d like to see some massive geothermal projects to address these problems, or the encouragement of teaming up with other industries that could use the waste heat, which has been tried at many places but poorly thought out and/or executed.

      Now that I think about it, you could use the waste heat to warm up a geothermal volume, and then buildings around that geothermal volume could draw from it as they please.  Then of course, district heating might be simpler, or a combination of the two.

    On the brighter side of climate change, Germany gets truffles.
