Seems like rivers will have to spend a few decades in court if we decide that they are indeed people despite not being sentient entities.
On the other hand, if the river was there before the hydro power plant was built, isn't the entity responsible for the hydro power plant guilty of illegal seizure of land? Not sure the USA would care given how it arose, but still something that has to be worked out.
My money's on the corporations being considered right on all accounts and the rivers probably being convicted of murder for anyone who drowned in it, despite (arguably) being self defense.
