DescriptionIn 1913 Captain W N McClean began, at his own personal expense, the monitoring of river flows and precipitation which were to become the precursor of a national survey of water resources. He was possessed by a belief that the exploitation of water resources in the Scottish Highlands for hydro power generation was lagging behind developments in Nordic countries and the Alps, at a time when social and economic development were much needed. The presentation examines the methods used, the extent of his monitoring, the presentation of his findings and the constancy of the challenge of closing the water balance.
