Shh! Secrets of the Cooling Towers - All Things Nuclear

Yes, some nuclear power plants have tall, concrete chimneys. But so do some coal-fired power plants and some oil-fired power plants. The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) required, among many other things, that power plants be designed and constructed to lessen the adverse consequences from their operation on the environment ...

Fort St. Vrain Generating Station - Wikipedia

The Fort St. Vrain HTGR power plant was proposed in March 1965 and its application was filed with the Atomic Energy Commission in October 1966. Construction began in September 1968. The HTGR design was safer than typical boiling water designs of the time having steel-reinforced, pre-stressed concrete containment dome structures.
