Over the past several months, I have been repeatedly asked if I knew anything about the mysterious foundations along the Pequea Creek near the Colemanville Covered Bridge on Fox Hollow Road. I was surprised to discover that Colemanville once had its own hydroelectric dam.

#Egypt says negotiations over an upstream #Niledam being built by #Ethiopia have not led to any “breakthrough.”
The long-running dispute centers on the filling and operation of what will be #Africa’s largest #hydroelectricdam.

Triumphant day for our year 9's at the AWE Stem Challenge. 1st place for design and 4th place for the amount of electricity generated. #HydroelectricDam#STEM#Teamwork@AWE_plc @theheadteacherpic.twitter.com/tqSvVtmf1f
We’ve been posting a lot of blogs lately (it’s just that time of year) and today we’ve posted Shayla and Eric’s Pinawa engagement session! Wouldn’t hurt ya to check it out🤗

The Reece Dam & Power Station made from over 2.6 million cubic meters of material @ 120m high and 355m in length... Holding back 640 million cubic meters of water 💦 and the spill way has the capacity to handle 4700 cubic meters per second 😮
The turbines were just idling today but I’ve been there where they are running and it’s an impressive volume of water to see coming out of the power station!!! And I believe I’ve only seen the water flowing over the spillway once but will certainly be making sure this in on the list to visit during winter this year...
I found a super cool tiny hydroelectric power plant tucked away in a super small Bulgarian mountain valley.
Apparently this bastard powers the entire village as well as the next village farther down the mountain pass. Glad I got to climb down and take a closer look at the inner workings of this bad mamma jamma 🤩
Pretty impressive the sheer amount of force water has and even more impressive is man's ability to bend that forced to our will 💪
Recently, CurtinMY Civil Society made a study visit to the Bakun Dam, the largest hydroelectric dam in Malaysia.

Grand Coulee Dam
The town of Grand Coulee does not have a bike shop. The closest one is a day's ride south - too much of a detour. My "fix" for the time being (until Winthrop) was to swap the front and back tube and tire, relocating the leaky tube to the front where lower pressure was tolerable.
The leaky tube did not stop me from enjoying the engineering marvel that is the Grand Coulee Dam, built during the Great Depression. With the later addition of the third powerhouse, it generates up to 6.8 gigawatts of electricity for the Western US and Canada, and irrigates 671,000 acres in Washington.
The Alder Hydroelectric dam had opened the flood gates! So cool watching from both the road and the lookout point!
A hydroelectric dam is one of the major components of a hydroelectric facility. A dam is a large, man-made structure built to contain some body of water. In addition to construction for the purpose of producing hydroelectric power, dams are created to control river flow and regulate flooding.
Dams fall into the category of retaining structures, or structures that are built to create large standing bodies of water known as reservoirs. These reservoirs can be used for irrigation, electrical generation, or water supply. These structures are built on top of riverbeds and hold back water, raising the water level. Dikes can be built along with the dam to increase the dams effectiveness by preventing water from leaving the reservoir through secondary routes.
The construction of these dams is difficult and labour intensive. Before construction begins, water is diverted or prevented from moving through the construction site. After water is diverted, the foundation area is cleaned, excavated, and rock or sediments that will act as the foundation are repaired and deemed solid. This is done to ensure the rock or sediments won't shift or fail as a result of the load of the dam and reservoir. Supports known as rock bolts may be used to strengthen the foundation. Above the dam, rock bolts and netting may be used to prevent rocks from falling on the dam. Forms are then built along the edges of the dam, rebar is placed inside, and concrete is pumped in. This is done in sections, and the concrete is poured bit by bit in a block formation. Once enough of the dam is built, the reservoir is allowed to fill in a highly controlled manner. The dam is monitored during this process.

The sky was bright and the water flowing Sunday, 2/2/19 over the dam spillway at Lake Sylvia State Park. Did you know this was once the site of a hydroelectric plant? A dam was built here to harness Sylvia Creek in 1903. It provided municipal power to the City of Montesano until the 1930s when the property was deeded over to state parks. Now it's a fun place to witness the power and beauty of water. ⠀

HAD to get some fresh while practicing social distancing. Best friend, dog, and I visited Minnehaha Falls. The OTHER one. Lunch picnic alongside the #TallulahRiver at an #hydroelectricdam. #funtimes
The Hoover Dam. Just awe inspiring to see, and my picture won’t even begin to do it justice. 726 ft tall and 1244 feet long at the crest. With the amount of concrete used in making this dam you could build a two-lane road from Seattle to Miami. The dam was completed in 1936, and was originally called Boulder Dam. The project was started during the Hoover administration, and Hoover was dealing with unpopularity and a crippling economic depression. When FDR took office his interior secretary took the name Hoover off the project. Political snub? Most likely. The name was switched back to Hoover in 1947 through HR 140, and signed by President Truman. Thousands worked on this massive project and over 100 people died during construction. It took 4.5 years to build. A monument to the human spirit, sheer will, and to engineering. Mind blown. #hooverdam#archgravitydam#lakemead#hydroelectricdam#concrete#nationalregistryofhistoricplaces#historiclandmark#artdeco#arizona#nevada#coloradoriver#mindblown#nikond3500#nikkor35mmf18#reallyamateurphotography
Прошлую неделю я провел в Башкортостане на Юмагузинской ГЭС. Открыл для себя, что в Башкирии самый правильный климат из всех регионов, что я был: времена года по графику, зима мягкая со снегом, весна логичная с марта, лето кайфовое, осень тоже какая надо осень. При этом, это единственный регион с 75% статистикой успешного бизнеса. Это, возможно, следствие унизительных зарплат, люди готовы работать за 12тр - а это хорошо для бизнеса.
Станция аккуратная, но от тех.оснащения наворачивается слезинка: был день, когда я бился с компьютером 1998года выпуска 13 часов без перерыва, вспомнил DOS, познал дзен, прошел торг-депрессию-принятие и обратно, но все же заборол его.
А, и такси тут по одному не возят, со мной в аэропорт ехал чувак с БАУЛИЩЕМ, а дорога занимает 3 часа. В итоге ему отдавило ноги и он выползал как Сергей Рост из танка в фильме "Чистилище"

The Mekong River has recently acquired an aquamarine color that may beguile tourists but also indicates a problem caused by upstream dams in Laos, experts in Thailand say. #Mekong#hydroelectricdam https://www.voacambodia.com/a/Mekong-rivers-new-aquamarine-color-may-be-sign-of-trouble/5195441.html …
