Clayton Falls, Bella Coola


The year 2003 is the year of fresh water. Canada (our home country) has fresh water in abundance, but even here it is subject to many different interests. This waterfall, for example, had hundreds of salmon at its base but its flow is greatly reduced to provide electricity for the people of Bella Coola. In this case the reduced flow doesn't hurt the salmon and the power is pollution-free, uses only a constantly renewed resource and isn't a source of greenhouse gases.
