The environmental impact assessment comprised the evaluation of potential effects on the elements of particular environments in the influence area of the Avce PSP. From the results it was estimated that the construction of the Avce PSP was an environmentally acceptable action in the framework of the envisaged measures and recommendations for environment protection. Solutions and measures were proposed for the reduction of negative environmental impact in order to protect the environment, preserve the nature, protect the cultural heritage and to ensure sustainable use of natural resources.

On several rivers in Slovenia we investigated the effects of damming and water abstractions for the small hydropower plants on the hydrological, morphological and biological parameters of the aquatic ecosystem. The results showed hydrological, biological and morphological changes below the dam: fragmentation of mesohabitats, reduction in diversity, size and hydrological characteristics; lower discharge and flow velocities were measured and a high level of downstream fining. Due to the damming and water abstraction changes in species composition and abundance of phytobenthos occurred.
