Coordinating Engineering and Environmental Activities in Hydropower Developmentby Thomas M. Keevin, Univ of Illinois, Urbana, IL, USA,

Abstract: This paper reviews the role of hydropower project personnel, particularly the interaction between project management, engineering, and environmental sciences staff in project planning and development. Instances of successful and unsuccessful conflict resolution are reviewed. An emphasis is placed on the interaction between engineering staff and project biologists. Examples of successful and unsuccessful interactions are presented. Because of the perceived, and actual importance of environmental quality issues, it is essential that project engineers and environmental scientists establish strong working relationships early, and throughout project development and operation.
