Abstract:Lake Sangchris, in central Illinois, provides cooling water for the Kincaid Generating Station, a coal-fired electric generating plant that was developed by Commonwealth Edison Company of Chicago in the early 1960's. During the years 1961 through 1963 several engineering reports were prepared for Commonwealth Edison Company regarding the construction of Kincaid Generating Station and its cooling lake. By July 1963 the company had decided to proceed with construction, starting the following summer. The first electrical power was produced at the plant in June 1967. Legal issues have arisen along with the development of Kincaid Generating Station. Even before the construction of the lake, questions were raised concerning public use of cooling reservoirs.
