Increase of river base flow by hydropower gate operation for mitigation of CSO impacts - potential and limitations

S. Achleitner & W. Rauch
Impacts of CSO spilling during storm weather is of special concern within small river or man made low flow stretches (e.g. caused by hydropower operation). For the latter, this measure aims to increased the base flow temporal in order to mitigate negative (acute) impacts from the CSO onto the river eco system. Goal is to provide sufficient dilution by operating upstream located retaining structures such as hydropower intakes. Both - energy producers and municipalities -...
