Coalition to Host a Hydrokinetics & Recreation Workshop


The Hydropower Reform Coalition is partnering with the National Park Service  to organize a “Hydrokinetics and Recreation Workshop” in Memphis, Tennessee on October 18 and a boating trip on the Mississippi River on Oct 19.

The workshop will be used to discuss recreational issues surrounding new hydrokinetic technologies like the ones being proposed on the Mississippi River. The workshop is targeted for regulators, developers, and stakeholders, including recreation
users along the Mississippi River and will review major recreation effects as well as options to study those effects.

There is no fee to participate in the workshop but registration is required. However, a small fee will be assessed to participate in the field trip.
