Thermal power plants using a water steam cycle require water for many purposes: preparation (commissioning); operation, during which makeup water is needed to compensate for the cycle losses; and potentially also cooling, in case of open circuit (river water direct cooling) or wet-cooling towers (either natural or forced draft).
