Auswirkungen der Stauhaltungen und sonstiger technischer Eingriffe auf den Gewässerhaushalt

[Effect of impoundment and other technical interference on the water regime]

Weber, E.


The building of dams across the Danube reduces flow and alters ecological conditions. Individual difficulties arise at each Danube power-plant, e.g.: increasing growth of hydrophytes; disadvantageous organic load of effluents from cellulose and sugar plants; change in self-purification of the river; removal of rolling stones; or prevention of the migration of Danube herrings, sturgeons and other fishes from the Black Sea.
