New sluice keeps Springhead’s hydro turbine turning

The hydro turbine helps us reduce our carbon footprint, by generating renewable electricity.Accumulating weeds, leaves and sticks have been clogging up the system which has at times resulted in it being shut down. Now, thanks to two grants, we have been able to install a new sluice gate to deal with this problem, and to help regulate the flow of water.
