Power station. Cooling water flowing into the sea at a gas-fired power station. Cooling water is used to condense the steam that drives the power station's turbines back into water, allowing it to be reused. It is itself warmed during this process, and its release back into the environment may disturb nearby ecosystems. Photographed on the Isle of Grain, Kent, England.
