The 1980's have been characterized as an era of uncertainty for world energy including future demand for energy, fuel prices and availability, regulatory constraints, environmental concerns, and the economic viability of all energy development projects, including hydropower. One of the objectives of Water Power '89 the sixth biennial international conference on hydropower, which was held August 23-25, 1989 and sponsored by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Department of Energy, et al., was to explore how planners, designers, operators, environmentalists, and regulators have responded to these challenges. The papers in these three volumes of proceedings from the conference cover all aspects of hydropower development and management planning, through design and construction, to project operation, with consideration being given to economic, financial, environmental, and legal issues, as well as engineering problems. Attention has been given to opportunities for rehabilitating, expanding, or redeveloping existing hydropower plants, developing techniques for improving the operation of both individual plants and total systems, and mitigating or minimizing environmental impact. Strong emphasis has been placed on sharing international experiences.
