A study on the influence of thermal water discharge from the Koezienice power plant on thermal regimes and water quality of the Vistula River was carried out between January 1973 and December 1975. Results of field survey of the thermal plume indicate that under non-extreme conditions of low flow and full capacity operation (1) the maximum stretch influence of heated water was 50 km and (2) theoretical models for estimating average temperature of cross-sections downstream are adequate. The influence of thermal water discharge on water quality was small and shown mainly by decrease in dissolved oxygen and increase in nitrite concentration.
