The Minnesota Municipal Power Agency recently constructed a 260-MW combined-cycle power generating facility near Faribault, Minnesota. The principals of Naturally Wallace Consulting were intimately involved in assessing the cooling water needs for the power plant under a variety of operating scenarios, including evaluating multiple water supplies with different dissolved solids contents.

The final result was a 14-hectare wetland park that was integrated into the facility design and is fully accessible to the public as a recreational area. The wetland park harvests stormwater runoff, agricultural drainage water and groundwater supplies to serve as a reliable and sustainable cooling water supply for power generation.
