Most of the new construction in our area is by the powerplant, most of our houses have been getting sewer water recently.

The water treatment plant and pump facilities are also right next to the powerplant as are a variety of businesses including a shopping mall and cheese factory that could use waste heat.

Just seems so foolish that the waste heat does nothing but make steam on the road and keep the river clear
