Abstract

My talk today concerns balancing hydropower production and dam removal in the United States and ushering in, what many commentators believe represents, a new era in hydropower and dam development in the United States. I hope after this talk you will be able to understand the basics of hydropower production in the United States and, in particular, the legal and the regulatory structures for the various kinds of hydropower facilities that we have in the United States.
