hydroelectric power

when did irish free state look to shannon as a source of hep? 1920s
when did the shannon scheme begin? it began in 1925 and took 4 years to complete. in 1929 it was the largest power plant in the world
what is then name of the power plant Ardnacrusha in the lower course of the shannon.
where is the river course was it built in the lower course as it is the steepest part of the river, as it falls 30m in 20km
what were built in parteen a weir and canal. The weir directed 2 thirds of the water from the shannon to the Headrace canal and caused 3 loughs to ride eg. lough derg
from the weir the water flows for 12.8 km along the canals to the turbines
how were the canals built by building embankments of up to 18m in height to stop the surronding land from flooding
positive impacts made shannon accessible for tourism eg lough derg ardnacrusha was capable of porducing enough electric power to supply to whole of ireland
negative impacts the wamount of water flowing downstream is greatly reduced fish stocks are depleted on the lower course of the shannon winter floods have become more severe
