The study presents a review and critique of existing technical information relevant to the environmental effects of the use of the Ohio River main stem for cooling. In order to evaluate the effect of heat discharges on the indigenous aquatic life of the Ohio River, an extensive review and critique of past and existing studies dealing with the biological aspects of cooling water was undertaken. In order to judge the effect of heat discharges on the thermal regime of the river, three one-dimensional river temperature prediction models--COLHEAT, STREAM and Edinger-Geyer were evaluated, and the most appropriate model was selected to analyze changes in temperature distribution along the river. The effects of heat discharges on the thermal regime of the river near the points of discharge were evaluated by analyzing and critiquing available thermal plume study results.
