Abstract: The hydropower industry is making the most of new and existing hydropower facilities to increase production. The purpose of the Waterpower '85 Conference was to review what has been accomplished to further the development of hydroelectric power and discuss different technical, economic, and environmental aspects. All facets of planning, design, construction, and operation of hydroelectric power projects are covered. The papers presented at the conference are divided into three volumes. The first volume includes papers on small and mini/micro hydroelectric power plants, case studies, financing, licensing, legal and cost-sharing issues, and economic analysis. Volume two includes papers on conventional hydroelectric power generation and pumped storage, research and development, design, and dam safety. Volume three includes papers on powerplant modernization, environmental impacts, international technical assistance and project development, operations, and computer modeling and applications.
