The problem of “thermal contamination” of the atmosphere around active hydroelectric power stations is investigated. Using the energy and material balance equations for a steady-state incompressible liquid flow, it is shown that natural heat release from a water discharge is comparable with and, occasionally, exceeds the heat discharge of a thermal power station with an output equal to that of the HPS.
