[ RadSafe ] Nuclear power plant cooling towers

Just curious ... in publicity photos, the cooling towers of a nuclear 
power plant are often shown with a full plume of steam floating out the 
top into the air.  I believe the intent is to suggest smoke pollution 
being released as in pictures of tall industrial smokestacks billowing 
smoke into the air.

Does anyone know of any surveys or have information about the extent to 
which the public is aware that it is simply steam or condensed water 
vapor being released from the cooling towers?  (Or heaven forbid, am I 
mistaken? Dog would never forgive me.)
