ABSTRACT
The construction of the transversal barriers (weirs and dam) on the Somesul Mic River resulted in a series of negative effects on the analyzed water body: r. Someşul Mic: cf. Nadăş - cf. Someşul Mare (Dej), especially on the longitudinal connectivity, blocking the upstream fish migration. The analyzed water body is placed on the lower course part of the Somesul Mic River, in the West part of Romania.
Generally, are well known the numerous environmental effects caused by transversal barriers, but the process of identifying significant impact and of all interactions between a hydro-energetically system and environmental components is extremely difficult due to complexity of the involved systems.
In order to inventory, as complete as possible, the impact generated by transversal barriers on the analyzed water body in this paper was applied the SWOT analysis, considered very effective in determining the current state of the water body.
