  •  Hundreds of turbines? (none)
    What would that do to the flow of the river?  Alluvial deposition, stagnation, the biota in the river, oxygenation...

    •  I doubt any hurt (none)
      The Detroit River is 32 miles long and varies from a half mile to three miles wide so there's plenty of area outside the shipping channels and below the depth of pleasure craft to work with. If our industrial activity hasn't done the river in, I don't think some turbines are going to hurt. Of course it would have to be an international effort.
