Arkansas Nuclear One at Night (4925a)

ANO is Arkansas' only nuclear powered electric generation station, and is owned and operated by the Entergy Corporation. Shown here after dusk, it operates 2 reactors, only one of which uses the visible cooling tower to condense the dry steam created to run the turbines back into liquid water. The other uses the lake water and simply returns the hot water to this "effluent, or discharge" pool off of Lake Dardanelle, creating a great winter fishery.
