Minmum Flow Units

Minimum Flow Units

Hydroelectric operators can face new environmental concerns at existing stations such as providing minimum flows to protect the fish and wildlife habitat, aquatic life, water quality, recreation, aesthetics, navigation or transportation. Oftentimes, the existing turbines are unable to operate during low-flow periods, or cannot direct flow releases where they are required by environmental or regulatory permits. Our team conducts minimum flow unit feasibility studies and provides conceptual and final design for the addition of minimum flow turbines.
