Look at all of this water that comes from the rocky mountains!

Southern Nevada gets nearly 90 percent of its water from the Colorado River, which begins as snowmelt in the Rocky Mountains.

The snowmelt travels through a series of tributaries into the river, which winds its way south for 1,450 miles and empties into the Gulf of California in Mexico.

Seven western states and Mexico share the river, which serves more than 25 million people.

I like water, i filter it in the sub micron range, do a little bit of organic compound adsorbtion and metal ion exchange, then gently cool it to just above freezing and then its ready for drinking.

Imagine not drinking water on the reg, no wonder you guys all look like sun bleached leather.

YouTube recommendations know that I love dam videos. I must be part beaver...

This one is about deconstructing an old hydroelectric dam that was originally built in 1913. The cost of maintaining the old dam was no longer worth the amount of energy they were generating, and the dam was disrupting salmon from traveling upstream to spawn.

This Belgian company specializes in micro-hydro turbines that don't need big dams or other expensive infrastructure. Using a drop of only 1.5 meters they can generate anywhere from 5 to 100 kW, and the turbine is designed to move slowly, in the center of a whirlpool, which means it doesn't harm fish if they happen to swim through it!
