TVA completes water tanks at Allen natural gas plant

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Tennessee Valley Authority has completed construction and filling of two 2.5-million-gallon tanks to hold MLGW water for cooling the Allen gas plant.

To meet the demands of the summer heat, all units are generating up to 1,150 megawatts of power.

These tanks will help to cool water when the plant is running at a period and for emergency cooling when primary water supply is lost.
