The evaluation of several thermal discharges in Fairbanks, Alaska was carried out to determine their effects on the physical parameters of the Chena River, a typical sub-Arctic stream. In addition, the effectiveness of two discharge schemes at the main thermal source was compared. The use of a surface-spreading scheme at either source would result in a heat dissipation rate per unit area 2 to 10 times greater than use of a submerged jet. The amount of ice cover downstream from the discharges would be approximately 40% more using the submerged jet. The advantages of each discharge method are discussed and two alternative cooling methods are suggested.
