Hoover Dam

A directory of technologies and resources pertaining to hydroelectric dams.

This page is sparsely populated because this is a well-developed, well-understood technology that doesn't really need explanation.

The down-side to dams include:

  • Removal of land area and the population (human and other living things) that once resided on that land, as well as the beauties of nature that resided there.
  • Blockage to natural flow of fish and other river-based life, including beavers.
  • Build-up of methane from the decomposition of organic matter.

A better alternative to large dams is Run-of-the-River, low-impact hydro technologies that allow for the natural flow of the river.
