Low-Flow Hydro

KRCD conducted a study in the early 1980s and again in 2001 to evaluate the technical and economic feasibility of installing low-head hydroelectric generation facilities on existing weirs and headgates.

Development plans were identified for 11 water storage and distribution sites within the service areas of the Fresno, Alta and Laguna irrigation districts, and the People’s Ditch Company.

Two sites may be feasible at a future date. KRCD monitors the energy market on an ongoing basis to determine if and when energy prices will support such low-flow hydro projects.
