Please direct me to any information on hydroelectric power.

This really is not my area of expertise but there may be some interesting information on small hydro-electric generation plants for home size elec- tricity production. You might see if you can get a copy of the Real Goods catalog from California (I think around Sacramento). They carry many alternative energy devices. If you are interested in large hydro-electric projects then I would suggest contacting the Bureau of Reclamation in Denver (It is a US government office). If I were you, I would try to formulate some specific questions for them to get the most out of a phone call.
