The EBC Dam Management Committee will host a site visit to the Hanover Pond hydro dam in Meriden, Connecticut. This is a unique project as it is the first in the U.S. to use the Archimedes Screw Turbine. This project was completed by the New England Hydropower Company and financed through the Connecticut Green Bank, and is expected to generate 920,000 kWh of electricity annually to Meriden under a long-term agreement with the City.

This site visit will include a tour of the dam as well as informal presentations from those who worked on completing this project.
