Important scientific literature which describe the limnology of the existing riverine environment, were overlooked in the preparation of statements concerning environmental impacts of the proposed action. The river in Waterton Canyon will be profoundly affected by construction of the Strontia Springs Dam. Downstream from the dam riverine environment will be characterized by compacted substrata (due to sluicing effect of discharge), luxurant growths of benthic algae (due to lack of sediment scour and presence of adequate growth nutrients), and depressed thermal regime (due to thermal stratification in the reservoir and hypolimnial release from the dam). Although a fishery may be sustained in the reservoir tailwaters, these changes should be considered as negative impacts in terms of the existing environment.
