Abstract [en]

The Lillpite River Valley stretches 45 km NV, from Piteå at the Gulf of Bothnia. The 619 km2 large catchment area comprises a dozen lakes. The average flow rate of the river is 6.24 m3/s. Lillpite Kraft AB, which owns the two power plants in Lillpite River, has now applied for a demolition permit after 30 years of unprofitable operation. This demolition will take place in 2020, after which there are no obstacles to the fish's migration in the river. The Lillpite River was famous for its large salmon but also for its trout, grayling and lamprey. River crayfish and pearl mussel exist in the river, both upstream and downstream of the two dams, and in the brooks. There are even eel and pikeperch in the river, which also holds beaver and utter. The economic association of the Lillpite River Valley manages the compensation (~30M€ over 50 years) for wind power intrusion in the area. This organisation is committed to make the river the fishing water it once was, as a driving force for the development of the river valley. At this seminar, we seek your help and advice based on knowledge and experience. How to determine the river status before and after dam removal? River erosion? Timeline after dam removal? Evaluation of ecology and biodiversity? How to improve conditions for fish, crustaceans and pearl mussel? How to meet sceptical locals? What should/could we do before the dam removal?
