Chinese ministry stops 1,000-MW Xiaonanhai hydroelectric project
from Hydro World
A letter sent by China's Ministry of Environmental Protection to the China Three Gorges Corporation has halted development of the country's 1,000-MW Xiaonanhai hydroelectric project. The project — slated for construction on an upper stretch of the Yangtze River known as the Jinsha River in China's southwest region — has been blocked primarily due to concerns regarding its impact on an ecologically significant portion of the country.
