  • Abstract. Sustainable management of natural water resources should include environmentally sound dam construction and operation with respect to both upstream and downstream management. Because of slowly evolving alterations in riverine ecosystems following the construction of a dam - due to the sometimes large distances between dams and affected areas, and the interference with other anthropogenic activities - some of the effects of damming may be overlooked. Constructing reservoirs modifies… CONTINUE READING
