One of the best seismically stable hydropower project was #TarbelaDam. Bcoz due to the pressure of water & sediment load the active tectonics got suppressed. Before constructing any mega #hydropower project, pre seismic zoning mst be ensured. Rawal Dam lies above active fault 1/2
Because #WAPDA didn't bother to conduct the pre #seismic zoning and even the post Dam assessment report doesnot address the active tectonics of the capital city! The authorities still living in denial that there is no active zone in the capital city!
#KoynaDam incident was such a case where no seismic zoning was performed & an #earthquake resulted in a #Dam break with a devastating impact and casualties. Dam construction can either trigger a fault or suppress it. Local geological settings must be assessed thoroughly.

Earth works are in progress at #Mohmand_Dam_Hydropower_project.

Mohmand Dam Hydropower Project is historic and unique in nature being constructed after the delay of over five decades. The project is scheduled to be completed in five years and eight months. ImageImage
It will store about 1.2 million acre feet (MAF) of water, generate 800 megawatt (MW) of low-cost hydel electricity and help mitigate floods in Peshawar, Charsadda and Naushera.

Besides supplementing 160,000 acres of existing land, about 16,700 acres of new land will also be irrigated because of Mohmand Dam. In addition, 300 million gallons water per day will also be provided to Peshawar for drinking purpose. Image

This dam conference on hydro-impacted communities starts today! It's actually named "Ki Ta Ski Naw" or 'rise up' in Cree. For those interested in following along, I think hashtags will be #hydroimpacted #hydrojustice & I'll also try to use #SiteC #bcpoli…
Looking forward to the first panel which will be moderated by BC journalist @sarahcox_bc. Opening welcome now. Starting to regain feeling in my face from the walk here, hi Winnipeg!
We're in Treaty 1 territory for the #hydroimpacted conference. Welcome by local elder Dave Scott in Cree language. Speaking now about the treaty relationship, its history, the 'doctine of discovery', Trudeau's White Paper & ongoing devolution process.. cc #SiteC #treaty8

I recently had the chance to visit one of the most innovative #Bitcoin mining operations in #Norway

Conclusion: Bitcoin mining is necessary, not wasteful, and even superior to the alternatives.

Read everything here and in this thread👇…
So far most #Bitcoin mining is done in #China, with subsidized electricity and coal power, here: A power plant in Xiangshawan Desert in Ordos of Inner Mongolia
. @NorthernBitcoin is one company who goes to where the cheap renewable energy is, in this case #Hydropower in Norway at a plant near Sandane
