Hydropower

By: Kolan LeMaster

1) we get this power from water.

2) We can get it from either canals or mostly larger rivers, like the Hoover dam in Nevada.

3) The most common type of hydroelectric power plant uses a dam on a river to store water in a reservoir. Water released from the reservoir flows through a turbine, spinning it, which in turn activates a generator to produce electricity.

4) I'm pretty sure there is a dam in Noblesville.

5) There are a couple small little dams in Indiana.

6) It is clean, it's a renewable power source, gives a lot of energy, and cheaper then fossil fuel ideas.

7) Dams are exspensive to build, natural environments might be destroyed, water shortages down the river, and kills tons of fish.

8) its pretty easy to convert, water just turns a turbine then activates a generator.

9) Yes, it can light the people's homes.

10) Yes, to light the whole school and power everything there.

11) Transportation is a yes.

12) It floods places, but I guess it doesn't damage that bad.

13) In some cases, changes in reservoir and stream water quality.

14) It gives off Carbon monoxide.

15) No, the dams are made further from civilization. They aren't loud up close either.

16) It wouldn't complete fix it, but it'd definitely help because it's cleaner.
