What will the impact be on fish?

A new fish pass will be made as part of the hydro power scheme. It is a natural design and allows both fish and eels to move upstream and will improve the river environment.

The fish pass will cut into View Island from the mill stream, to the east, where there will be a sluice. From there the ‘technical section’ will run gently downhill to join the existing streambed, and water will flow along this towards the hydro scheme. It will join the river immediately adjacent to the turbines and create an attraction flow for fish. It will be as it is today, a natural and unbounded area forming part of View Island.
