Environmental criteria/groups that hydroelectric power projects can face

What are the specific environmental criteria/groups (physical and biochemical) that have risk factors that hydroelectric power projects can face?

Unfortunately, that is a very specific question and I do not have particular information on that area. What I can list is a set of topics that may be considered risk factors:

  • Earthquake can deteriorate construction
  • Excess rain may determine the need to discharge water from the dam and promote floods downstream
  • Lack of rain may determine failure to supply water downstream at ecological levels
  • High temperature and stagnant waters may develop hazardous bacteria or promote eutrophication
  • Blocking the flow of water when it is contaminated, for example, by discharges from a chemical company, preventing contamination downstream (opportunity)
  • Destroying or badly affecting traditional river fishing activities due to high variations in water level downstream within a 12 hour period

Do you get the pattern?

Events that may happen, but you cannot say when will it happen

Perhaps the last one is not a risk, there is no uncertainty, it is forecastable and the probability is far from zero.

Please check this information below with more detailed answers:
