The issue of the increased number of hydropower applications has recently been raised in an Executive meeting. This potential threat to fish stocks needs to be monitored and as such the Executive are asking that any clubs or interested parties that may have information about planned or exsisting hydropower projects keep the WSTAA execuitive infomed.

Several questions are to be sent to member clubs.

1.  Are you aware of any hydropower projects either in existence or proposed that are in your area?

2.  If so are you aware of any detrimental effects to your fishery?

3. Have your club considered adopting a tributary?

If on reading this you feel that you can be of assistance or require further information please email the WSTAA secretary on cheryl.bulman@sky.com
