As Europe struggles through a major heatwave,
. . . the French energy company EDF says,
. . . it has halted a 4th nuclear reactor,
EDF said the decision was made to avoid overheating the rivers.
Nuclear power plants use water from the rivers,
. . . to cool down the temperatures of their reactors,
. . . before sending the water back into the rivers.
Rivers that are unusually warm,
. . . can experience mass fish die-offs, which has happened in,
. . . Germany in the past week.
