1. Water from a nearby lake, river, ocean or man-made reservoir

A power plant's condenser may be cooled through the use of a cooling tower or water from a nearby lake, river, ocean or man-made reservoir.


Explanation:

The power plant's condenser uses a cooling system to condense the steam running from the turbine. Just as steam condenses in a cool drinking glass on a hot day.

Cool surface is provided by cooling water pumped from a nearby water supply such as a lake, river, ocean or man-made reservoir.
