Water level regulation for purposes of hydropower production has caused notable changes in the littoral zones of regulated lakes in northern Finland. Marked geomorphological changes have taken place in the lakes with a raised water level. Lowering of the ice cover during the winter has also caused rapid changes in the littoral. Changes in the environmental conditions and aquatic macrophyte communities were studied largely by comparing the regulated Lake Ontojärvi and the unregulated Lake Lentua…

Ecological impacts of winter water level drawdowns on lake littoral zones: a review
Freshwater littoral zones harbor diverse ecological communities and serve numerous ecosystem functions that are controlled, in part, by natural water level fluctuations. However, human alteration of
Interactions between environmental factors and vertical extension of helophyte zones in lakes in Finland
Sheltered shores in boreal lakes are typically dominated by emergent helophytes in which the perennating organ lies in soil below the water level, but the aerial shoots protrude above the water.

Disturbance effects on aquatic vegetation in regulated and unregulated lakes in northern Minnesota
TLDR
There was either too little or too much disturbance from water-level fluctuations in the regulated lakes, both resulting in reduced structural diversity, and the natural hydrologic regime at the unregulated lake resulted in intermediate disturbance and high diversity.

Enhanced growth of aquatic macrophytes have been recorded from some Norwegian rivers regulated for generating hydropower, and reducing the aquatic vegetation to manageable levels is desirable. Weir

A Hydrological Model for Predicting the Effects of Dams on the Shoreline Vegetation of Lakes and Reservoirs
TLDR
Using observed within-year and among-year water level fluctuation data, a general model for the maintenance or restoration of diverse herbaceous wetlands on shorelines of temperate lakes or reservoirs is proposed, based on data from low-fertility, temperate Lakes in river systems.
