Hydroelectric Power Stations
Description:
Our goal at "hydroelectric power stations" is to locate and waymark any types of hydroelectric power stations all over the world.
Expanded Description:
To qualify as a waymark you have to find a hydroelectric power station. This could be a huge power station for the electricity supply of a mega-city or a converted mill at a little river. The power station can also be abandoned.


The Hoover Dam power plant


A Pumped-Storage power plant in the Czech Republic


Water supply of a small Run-of-the-river power plant near Rosenheim


Run-of-the-river power station in Rosenheim (Bavaria)

Instructions for Posting a Hydroelectric Power Stations Waymark:
To post a "hydroelectric power station" waymark you have to include the GPS coordinates of the site or the main-entrance and at least TWO clear pictures. One picture of the main building of the power station and another of the water supply. If there's a river, please take a picture of the entire plant. If possible add some informations about the power station (for example: history, construction and so on...). Please note, that we are not looking for dams, only for power stations.

For naming the waymark please use the following template for the title:

Name of the power station - place, "county", state and country

For example the hydroelctric power station in "Kochel am See" than the wording is:

"Walchenseekraftwerk - Kochel am See, Lk. Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bayern, D"

or the Robert Moses Niagara Hydroelectric Power Station, than please type:

"Robert Moses Niagara Power Station - Lewiston, Niagara County, New York, USA"

A detailed description of the power station is necessary. If you know something about the turbines or the type of the power station (see choose-boxes), please add.

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
For posting a log to an existing waymark, you will need to post a unique picture of the power station. If is not open to the public, please do not enter private property. A picture from the distance is sufficent. If it's possible to enter the machine hall, a picture of it would be nice. Please add some additional informations if possible.
