The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Hydropower: Potential Energy for Minnesota?

Geisen, Robert J.

Minnesota's potential in 1989 for hydropower is explored through calculations based on river height and flow and an assessment of existing and potential dams in the state. The analysis indicates that if fully exploited, hydropower could double the amount of electricity being generated from state waters today. This would yield 20 percent of the total annual demand for electricity.
