Rare fish found in upper Wateree River - Local / Metro -

Sammy Fretwell
Duke Energy Inc. is locked in a dispute with environmentalists and federal fisheries managers over how to protect shortnose sturgeon below the company’s hydroelectric dam at Lake Wateree.
The power company previously has said because shortnose sturgeon do not live in the upper Wateree River, it should not be forced to release water from the dam to levels sought by federal biologists and environmentalists. The extra water is supposed to improve habitat for sturgeon, but could cost the power company millions of dollars to accommodate the fish.
