The influence of initial conditions on the prediction of the increase of river temperature below the point of release of heated water for a designed power plant has been analysed in this study. The results for different assumed values of river flow and different temperatures of the discharged heated water have been presented. The results have been analysed taking into account existing legal frames. The two-dimensional inhouse RivMix model has been used to simulate the temperature distribution whereas the two-dimensional depth-averaged turbulent open channel flow model CCHE2D has been used to simulate the velocity fields and the water depths for the selected flows of the river.
