[Final summary report]
This study focuses on low head technologies which can be productively installed in existing constrained waterways that were originally intended for delivering irrigation water, a hydropower area that appears to be lacking in overall knowledge. A number of low cost, low head turbines have recently been introduced to the market, but are unknown to Colorado's water users. The purpose of this study is to provide relevant information to agriculturally-related water users on the opportunities that may exist to implement low head hydropower on their systems.
