Water Research Center

Water Research Lab

Georgia Power withdraws approximately 1.3 billion gallons of water per day from public waterways, but returns approximately 90 percent, or 1.1 billion gallons, back to Georgia's rivers. That's important as state's and region's water needs continue to grow.

The Water Research Center(WRC) provides an exciting and innovative facility to explore ways we all can help to preserve the world's water resources. The WRC is focused on finding new technologies to reduce, conserve and improve the quality of water returned to the environment from power plants.

This exciting collaboration between Georgia Power, the Electric Power Research Institute, Southern Research Institute and 14 other electricity generation companies allows technology developers from all over the world to test their systems under real-world conditions. This pioneering research will help determine what works and what doesn't work in conserving and recovering the water used in the processes of generating electricity. The WRC is expected to yield industry-wide insights that will help power companies minimize the use of water and increase conservation.
