Paper deals with results of studies of spatial distribution of zooplankton and its heterogeneity in technoecosystem of the Khmelnytsk NPP. Zooplankton of the cooling pond of the Khmelnytsk NPP was shown to be rich in species and on the whole typical for the region. The heterogeneity of the structure and abundance of zooplankton is expressed at different levels: the whole technoecosystem, cooling pond, inlet and outlet channels and sites, within the depth of the individual sites. Zooplankton irregularities are also affected by the hydrodynamic processes associated with the technogeneous water circulations and wind flow, as well as differences in conditions between the cooling pond, inlet and outlet channels, littoral and pelagial, zooplankton income from the feeding rivers of the cooling pond.
