The times that I have seen this work had more to do with what would otherwise have been truly industrial "waste" hot water, rather than water heated for this purpose.
Best example I have seen is when I visited Golden Colorado, where Coors was originally just dumping the hot waste water from their plant (I'll beat you to the punch and point out that Coors light is also known as warm waste water) and using it to warm both the streets and the sidewalks. In their case I am sure it is helped along by the fact that I think the National Renewable Energy Lab is located in Golden.
