<<In Washington State, environmentalists wrote into their initiative that hydro power wasn't to be considered a renewable power resource.

If enough water is removed from Washington rivers for agricultural irrigation, industry, and lawns, and if there's less precipitation feeding those rivers due to climate change, maybe hydro isn't as renewable as it used to be.>>



Hydro power doesn't remove water from rivers.
