Norđlingaalda diversion

River Ţjórsá

- Norđlingaalda diversion

Proposals for a river diversion at Norđlingaalda have been rejected for environmental reasons. The construction of the diversion would entail damming the river Ţjórsá 8 km downstream from the Ţjórsárver Nature Reserve. The flow of waterfalls in the river Ţjórsá would be reduced by 40%, in addition to the 30% reduction caused by the construction of the Kvíslar Diversion a quarter of a century ago.
