Amount of Produced Hydroelectricity Canada vs. Worldwide
How It Works
The second way of using water to make electricity is called a pumped storage. Question when do we use electricity the most? Most answers would be that they use it in the day when the sun is out and people have to go to work, school, markets etc. But when the night comes and people got to bed after a long day they turn off their lights and sleep. So hydrologists thought of pumped storage , it's like a hydroelectric dam but when the the night falls they suck up all the water used in the day time back up the storage pool through the turbines that they flowed through the day and back down the it during the day time when electricity is on high demand.
How It Is Distributed
How It Effects Us
Though not a big problem and does not happen a lot there are changes in the water chemically that involve changes in the oxygen in the water, altered nutrient levels, and increased mobilization in metals. A big problem in this problem is Mercury the element ( atomic number 80 and atomic symbol Hg) when bonded into the water ( H2O) it can effect the fish negatively so that when we consume it, it can cause severe health risks to us and other animals that consume it which is a lot and can effect our environment.
