Neil Farmer (March 2004)...I was up in the Fechlin glen at the weekend and took these photos of the dam
construction underway just now.

This shows where the intake seems to be planned, above the first
grade 4+ rapid, the one on the right hand corner.

This shows the bridge placed across the "narrows" rapid.

Not sure how far the pipes will take the water, if they put it back in
before the end at all?

Very sad really.

Sustainable energy? Enough for a few houses per year, is it worth the
destruction of such natural places?
