Funds are not being required up-front for Dam Decommissioning on any of the hydroelectric proposals going through the approvals process. Power Generation Agreements must include mandatory up-front funds for dam decommissioning, so that if for some reason the generating station is no longer viable the funds will be in place to cover costs for removal. There is a very good likelihood of this if the dam becomes environmentally or socially unsustainable due to climate change, or in the event of major damage to the dam caused from ice and/or flooding - this must be made a condition for approval. This expense must no longer fall on the shoulders of the taxpayer, but be borne by the developer.
