Baikal's Downstream Hydropower Plants

December 18, 2018

Sometimes forgotten in the discussion about the planned upstream dams, Baikal's four downstream dams have undeniable effects on the lake and its ecology.

 

This story (posted on a website at least partly underwritten by the EN+ Group, founded by Oleg Deripaska) confirms what the expedition witnessed in person during October 2018: the Selenge was running much higher than in recent autumns. In many places, waist-high willows were a foot (or two) under water!
