In this paper, some problems commonly encountered in the construction and production process of small hydro-power stations in China are analyzed and explained, and the solutions are provided as well. Existing problems we have are the shortage of Eco-flow discharge, the Oil pollution in downstream river course caused by power generation production at the station, the cooling water supply of hydro-power station and the problem of eliminating pollution, electromagnetic and noise pollution of station, the resident's dispute around the power station caused by the increase and decrease of the groundwater level at the location of the station, the flood control problem of the water diversion hub, the pollution of the river channel, and the danger caused by the height of trees under the transmission line. The author, who based on many years of practical experience in hydro-power stations, and combined with relevant state policies and regulations, and puts forward practical methods and ideas to solve the problem in close connection with the actual situation of the project.
