New Hydro on Afon Ystwyth

There is a new micro hydro scheme being built on the Upper Ystwyth, just after the put on. It is river wide and and dangerous as it is still under construction. See photos below:

Noooo! Looks like one of my favourite runs has been impacted. From the picture it looks like it just above the old dam structure that has the syphons on river right, is that right?

Was there any consultation?

Kind regards

Hey James,

Yeah it's just before the dam structure, which I've always known as 'Drovers' Bridge'.

As for consultation, basically, it wasn't very well publicised. I havn't been back in Aber for a while, but my dad was saying that the first he knew about it was when we looked at it the other day, and he usually keeps an eye on these things.
