 Boing Boing: Toronto pumps near-freezing lake water into its summer office-towers
A MetaFilter post links to several information resources on Toronto's new innovative downtown cooling system, which pumps near-freezing water from Lake Ontario's deeps through the city's office-towers, eliminating 40,000 tons of CO2 pollution per annum (no word on whether there's an environmental impact to pumping the atmosphere-warmed water back into the lake).
Toronto's had centralised steam-heat for decades -- a system where steam radiators in the city's office-towers are all filled with hot vapour from the same centralised plant, a curious species of public utility that truly makes all of the office towers (which contain bitter rivals and competitors) into a single, linked, cooperative system.
The "warm" water is then cleaned and used as drinking water in Toronto, not just merely dumped back into the lake.

Liming of lakes must be done with considerable caution and with an awareness that the aquatic ecosystem will not be restored to its original pre-acidic state even though the pH of water may have returned to more normal levels.
Acidification of a lake causes a reduction of the production of phytoplankton (which is a primary producer) as well as in the productivity of the growth of many other aquatic plants.
The lakes probably have all these poisonous chemicals in them: salts drained from urban streets, coliform bacteria from the sewage civilization plus a selection of substances such as phosphorus, polychlorinated biphenyls and heavy metals.
