Colonial Water Power

A correspondent of "The Times" gave recently some exceedingly interesting details of some of the great Colonial water power developments in hand or under contemplation. These include schemes of hydro-electric power which are being carried out in tropical countries. Apart from the £6,000,000 Shannon project, which stands in a different category, the harnessing of the River Jordan below Lake Tiberias, the approaching completion of the Niger River storage dam, and the offer of tenders for the Pangani River works in Tanganyika illustrate the general demand for cheap and efficient power. The great Mandi scheme in the Himalayas will cost £4,000,000, and produce a maximum of 38,000 kilowatts.
