Wakarusa Group Hosts Hydroelectric Tour

The Wakarusa Group sponsored a public tour of the Bowersock Dam and Hydroelectric Power Plant on Saturday, October 27, in Lawrence.  Twenty-seven members and guests learned about the history of the dam and the generation of electricity at the only hydroelectric power plant in Kansas.  Sarah Hill-Nelson arranged the tour and explained how falling water powers the turbines that operate the electric generators.  The company would like to add additional turbines if funds can be obtained.  Urge your Congressman to include support for hydroelectric power plant expansion in the energy bill.  For more information about Bowersock, check out their website at www.bowersockpower.com
