Hydropower Good or Bad?
By Aly, Imani, And Derek
Any source of power can have negative impacts on the environment, and hydropower is no exception. When a hydropower dam is constructed, it blocks a flowing river and essentially turns it into a stagnant lake, and in many cases, fish are no longer able to follow their usual path. Some salmon and other fish populations have been decimated—and several even classified as endangered—as a result of dam construction.
If dam brakes, the water will destroy everything in its path.
Dams push fish down stream.
