Basslink integrated impact assessment statement: potential effects of changes to hydro power generation. Appendix 18: Downstream poatina instream biota assessment
Davies, PE and Cook, LSJ (2001) Basslink integrated impact assessment statement: potential effects of changes to hydro power generation. Appendix 18: Downstream poatina instream biota assessment. Project Report. Hydro Tasmania, Hobart.
This report addresses the current status of the instream biota (flora and fauna) of streams downstream
of the Poatina power station tailrace, namely Brumbys Creek, and the lower Macquarie and South Esk
Rivers. It evaluates the influence of the current Hydro power station at Poatina on the instream
ecology and fishery of this system. It then examines the possible effects of changes in flow regime
which may result from the Basslink development (as modelled using TEMSIM). Management issues
are described, and possible mitigation options explored. Monitoring requirements are also described.
