Decrease in DO (Dissolved Oxygen) Levels

 The warm temperature reduces the levels of DO (Dissolved Oxygen) in water. The warm water holds relatively less oxygen than cold water.

Effects of Thermal Pollution

Increase in Toxins

With the constant flow of high temperature discharge from industries, there is a huge increase in toxins that are being regurgitated into the natural body of water.

Ecological Impact

A sudden thermal shock can result in mass killings of fish, insects, plants or amphibians. Hotter water may prove favourable for some species while it could be lethal for other species.
