Watch the film, 'Kelham Island Hydro', and ask whether what boils down to be a few kettles' worth of hydro-generated electricity is proportionate to the decimation of our little-understood and very fragile river ecosystems.
If you have problems viewing the film from here, please view on Vimeo or watch on Google where you can also download to your pc.

Jordan Dam Dead in The Water
The sister project for the Kelham Island scheme will not be going ahead despite raising £200k+ from a community share offer. Why not?
