A methodology revaluating environmental impact assessment studies on dams. The case study of Ladonas River, Peloponnese, Greece

Water resources management projects, despite of the beneficial effects on human beings, bear and noteworthy effect on the environment, must be subjected to appraised and evaluated making use of Environmental Impact Assessment studies (EIA). The case history under study is a hydroelectrical project on river Ladona in central Peloponnese, Greece, which had been constructed since 1958.

At this paper an attempt is made alterations of the environment at a wide area around the dam to be recorded, during 50 years of its lifetime, followed by the determination of the most important environmental impacts to be scrutinately investigated, as well as proposals for the alleviation of the repercussions that are caused. The methodology that was followed, took into account the evaluation of the environmental impacts of the hydroelectric project, as well as the comparison of the situation before and after the building of the dam.

Der Untergrund des Standorts Ex-Tugir in Rivera (Schweiz) weist eine teils starke und tief reichende Belastung von CrVI und Crtot auf. Die Schadstoffsituation ist sehr komplex: Neben dem Vorhandensein von leicht löslichen Chromaten hat sich durch die spezifischen Standortbedingungen eine schwer lösliche CrVI-Phase (Jarosit) gebildet, welche zu einem beträchtlichen CrVI-Reservoir im Untergrund geführt hat.

Lake Como is the deepest and the third largest lake in Italy, which lies in an important industrial and commercial area of Northern Italy. The main activities concern textile factories and clothing and, of slight importance, metal manufacturing. In the Southern part of the Como branch of the lake, where waters are withdrawn for potable use, the inlet of Torrent Cosia represents an important source of known and unknown substances potentially dangerous for freshwater organisms and for human uses.

Ecological risk assessment of cheese whey effluents along a mediumsized river in southwest Greece
© Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (6/2009)
An ecological risk assessment of cheese whey effluents was applied in three critical sampling sites located in Vouraikos river (southwest Greece), while ecological classification using WFD 2000/60/EU criteria allowed a direct comparison of toxicological and ecological data. Two invertebrates (Daphnia magna and Thamnocephalus platyurus) and the zebra fish Danio rerio were used for toxicological analyses, while, the aquatic risk was calculated on the basis of the risk quotient (RQ = PEC/PNEC).

Temporal variability of water quality in Platanovrisi Reservoir related to stratification/mixing conditions
© Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (6/2009)
The temporal physical and chemical patterns in the water column of Platanovrisi Reservoir, one of the two Nestos River hydropower reservoirs, are studied through monitoring and modelling. The monitoring program consisted of an one site sampling (Platanovrisi Bridge), with 20 days repeatability throughout year 2007, to obtain profiles of current speeds, water temperature, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, phosphates, total phosphorus, ammonium, nitrate, nitrite, TKN and chlorophyll-a.
