Case Study: Modifications To Circulating Water Traveling Screens Save Fish At Salem Generating Station

Challenge

Located on the shores of the Delaware River, Salem Generating Station is situated in an environmentally sensitive area. The Delaware Estuary contains approximately 200,000 acres of salt-water marshes fed by numerous rivers and streams. When their operating license came up for renewal, the state of New Jersey required the Public Service Electric & Gas Company to modify their circulating water traveling screens for better fish handling at the Salem Generating Station.
