Water and sediment management

Water and sediments play a decisive role in the habitat of aquatic species. Regulated water bodies have altered these factors.

Sediment accumulation is a consequence of water regulation and poses challenges on several levels. Statkraft initiated a project to study the effect of these processes and to develop a mapping tool for surveillance and monitoring of in-stream sediment changes. The result is a very promising tool based on green laser technology in combination with state-of-the-art reports on sustainable sediment management in regulated rivers.
