This article deals with the problems arising from diminished water fIow when water is diverted from streams and rivers to provide hydroelectric power. The ways in which the governments of Salzburg, Switzerland and Bavaria have tackled these problems are compared. Finally the methods of investigation of the biocenotical succession in the residual stretches when water is diverted to power stations are evaluated.
