Hydraulics and Hydro-Power Engineering

This area of Civil Engineering pertains to the prediction and control of both the best and the amount of water in each underground (aquifers) and above ground (lakes, rivers, and streams) sources. It consists of those sub tracks Hydrology and water sources, Flood and drought management, Irrigation and water conservancy, Environmental Hydraulics, Hydraulic Concrete structures, Water Conservancy Survey, Hydraulic Engineering production, Hydraulic machinery, applied Hydraulic Transients

Most new hydropower project must undergo an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment. This provides a base line understand of the pre project conditions, estimates potential impacts and puts in place management plans to avoid, mitigate, or compensate for impacts.
The Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Protocol is another tool which can be used to promote and guide more sustainable hydropower projects. It is a methodology used to audit the performance of a hydropower project across more than twenty environmental, social, technical and economic topics. A Protocol assessment provides a rapid sustainability health check. It does not replace an environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA), which takes place over a much longer period of time, usually as a mandatory regulatory requirement
