How we use water for energy!
What is hydropower? and it's history
The use of dams began in the early Middle East in about 3000 BC. Then the dam was 30 feet tall and 3.3 feet wide. Since then, there have been different models. An example of one of those models is the water wheel, which we used during the Industrial Revolution. Now we use modern dams all over the country.
