LAM DONG — Hydro-power projects located in areas of ecological varieties have affected the ecological system and caused losses of water-head protective forests.
The assessment was heard at a conference on the protection of Dong Nai River Basin held in Da Lat last Friday.
Hydro-power projects located on the upper sections of the regional rivers have negative impacts to the water environment and cause floods in the lower section, said Nguyen Van Thanh from the Ministry of Industry and Trade.
