1) Release of cold water can kill off species of fish and fauna.
The temperatures that can occur can be as low as 50 F, saltwater 75 F, and
Tropical 80 F
2) Warmer water contains less oxygen.
fish and amphibians can be harmed by this as it could cause their metabolic rate to
increase resulting in food being used up in a shorter time.
Fish may migrate, and other species move in competition for resources begins.
biodiversity might be at risk
functions such as osmosis and metabolism might be affected.
Increase of algae = less oxygen in water
Denaturing of enzymes
The temperature can be as high as 70 Ft for freshwater, 80 F for saltwater, and 85
F for tropical fish at the point of thermal pollution
