Canal Boat - - News -

A plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion has been sub­mit­ted for a hy­dro­elec­tric plant at the former mill be­side Flint Mill Lock on the Cal­don Canal. Al­though it will be op­er­ated by wa­ter from the canal, it won’t de­plete the canal’s sup­plies as this sec­tion is fed from the River Chur­net at Con­sall Forge. Wa­ter for the lock will take pri­or­ity over the hy­dro plant, and the max­i­mum wa­ter flow in the canal from the op­er­a­tion of the tur­bines will never ex­ceed 1/4 me­tre per sec­ond at the tight­est pinch points un­der bridges.
