so, do they mean that they are using a small dam with a bunch of turbines to produce power. Sounds like it won't affect the flow very much, especially with the amount of water that comes down that valley. I know the Yampa has several small dams and reservoirs high up that don't really affect the natural flow much at all.
Am I on the right page here?

If so, it sounds like a reasonable compromise.

It's not a situation where there was a compromise. Local City Council tried to block the zoning for the project, but the BC Provincial government, passed a law saying that local government cannot pass laws pertaining to Independent Power Projects.

Lots of the BC classics are in danger for these types of dams.

There's lots of info out there and others need to know.
