Effect of intended water abstraction for small hydropower plant (HPP) on river Radoljna on ecological status



Sections on river Radoljna under the influence of water abstraction

In the study the influence of the proposed small hydropower plant on aquatic assemblages proven to respond best to hydrological modification was inspected. A sheme of water abstraction criteria on river Radoljna was proposed, based on which dinamic hydrological conditions along selected section might be maintained and hence reference conditions preserved.

    Duration of the project



    Expert bases for determining the priorities of the Republic of Slovenia in the field of environment and efficient use of resources and identification of the themes that are most suitable for co-financing from the LIFE program

    In the framework of the project task, we prepared guidelines on the thematic priorities from the Multi-annual LIFE work program for the period 2014–2017 in the priority area Environment and efficient use of resources, and Environmental management and information for Lot 1: water, including the marine environment. The thematic priorities...

    Remote sensing of large river hydromorphological characteristics and impact assessment on biotic communities

    The project’s aim is to identify and compare impacts of different stressors (hydromorphological alterations, pollution, land use), acting on different spatial scales (reach, segment, catchment), on benthic macroinvertebrate and fish communities in Slovenian large rivers, as well as to analyse the comparability between field survey and remote sensing based hydromorphological...
