Low-Impact Makes Big Splash

February 2002 - The Board of the Low Impact Hydropower Institute (LIHI) recently implemented a number of changes to its certification standards. One of the most important changes is that "new" hydropower generation facilities, which are defined as additions made to existing dams after August 1998, are now eligible for certification. Prior to this decision, only projects operating on or before that date were eligible for certification. The Board also extended existing alternative options for meeting the flows and fish passage criteria for two more years. And finally, it decided to delay enhancements to the water quality and watershed protection criteria for two years and to extend the term of certification from two to five years.
