Acceptable water quality standards are discussed with relation to mixing areas and thermal pollution. Mixing, not a substitute for water treatment, should be accomplished quickly to ensure waste is mixed with the allocated dilution water in the smallest possible area. Water quality standards must be met at the border of the mixing area. Discharge of heated water must be controlled since heat is a pollutant. Guidelines on thermal pollution control, temperature effects on dissolved oxygen, and fishery composition studies are described with respect to aquatic life criteria.
