Generating Power for the Public Water Supplies

The provincial government in BC should require all municipal water systems to have turbines built into them to produce electrical power. We have dozens of domestic water supplies in BC that are gravity fed and could easily turn a turbine. At the moment that energy is not captured.

Where this has been done by some of the mountain towns in the US, the sales of the power go a long way towards covering the costs of the water system.
