Anyone have any experience with these? I am thinking of getting something like one of these pentair five-filter models

WTF, in this video Wild Waterways Conservancy,  a volunteer non-profit organization took possession of a dam from the local government in Pennsylvania for $1 in order to facilitate the dam removal and conserve fish habitat.

oops we got rid of all the water in california for farmland and now there's no more rain

boy golly who could have seen that coming



i just realized - because plants are mostly water, and they ship crops out: when they farm with limited water, they're literally trucking out their water supply, piece by piece. and locking it up in long term carbon growth (like almond trees).

also i came back to this thread - years later! bc a discord friend asked about low flow hydroelectrics and i knew there was resources here, that i could pass on. thanks wetfish. Thetfish.

This guy makes nerdy water videos about reservoirs in the US. Turns out the pipes are damaged at Lake Powell and they might run out of water they can deliver to Las Vegas & California

Oops! So now the Bureau of Reclamation is looking into replacing the pipes which will probably take years
