Thermal effects of hydroelectric power stations on the environment

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.
