Some rejected water discharged into the environment cause environmental contamination


In some instances, rejected thermal water is discharged into the environment. Some plant species, animals, etc. are affected badly.

If some gases are emitted into the atmosphere, they also affect the air quality around such power plants. Some health problems in animals and humans have been reported.
