Salt foam floats on Turkey Point cooling canals in November 2011. Over the summer, the increasingly salty canals topped 102 degrees, forcing the utility to ask federal regulators to increase operating temperature limits from 100 to 104 degrees to avoid having to shut down the plant’s two nuclear reactors. The utility now wants permission to pump up to 100 million gallons of water daily from a nearby drainage canal to freshen and cool the canals.
