In the 1990s, my family built a hydroelectric power station using 1910s machinery adjacent to an existing timber crib dam in St Regis Falls, NY. In 2014, the old dam failed and we built a new one in its place. It is a timber crib structure 110' long, 24' wide and 16' tall, built of over 500 logs and 800 tons of rock. We did this ourselves, with the help of a local crew of carpenters.
