Georgia Power Co. and the Electric Power Research Institute will create a Water Research Center at the utility’s Plant Bowen to develop and test water conservation technologies. Research will focus on improving water efficiency by studying withdrawal, consumption and recycling throughout the power generation process.

The research center will have seven research focus areas: moisture recovery, cooling tower and advanced cooling systems, zero-liquid discharge options, low-volume wastewater treatment, solid waste landfill water management, carbon technology water issues as well as water modeling, monitoring and best management practices.

It is expected to be operational by August 2012.
