Excerpt from Small Hydroelectric Potential at Existing Hydraulic Structures in California

This bulletin reports the results of a study of the feasibility of developing small hydroelectric power - generating facilities at California's existing hydraulic structures, such as dams, canals, and pipelines. By identifying potential sites for such development and evaluating their cost effectiveness, the Department of Water Resources hopes to encourage private, as well as public, entities to invest in the state's energy future.

Although the Department only evaluated sites within the state, these hydraulic structures also typify those that commonly occur in other states. Because of this, the results of this study are freely transferrable nation wide, and the report's findings should be beneficial to any state that is concerned about its energy independence.

In 1974, a departmental report, Hydroelectric Energy Potential in California (bulletin identified potential sites for hydroelectric facilities that had a generation potential of more than 25 million kilo watthours annually. The report inventoried hydroelectric developments that had been studied previously, but those which might warrant reevaluation in view of quadrupling oil prices. Most of the projects required the con struction of new dams and reservoirs or the enlargement of existing facilities.
