This map started with only the brook and and a few small pools. I wanted to see what it would take to create a reservoir. It turned out to be far more difficult that I thought to generate enough water to flood the area.
This was the third power station for the pump system. You can see previous power unit a little north. This had to be redesigned a few time to resolve evaporation issues. The water level would plumet until I place a wall underneath the pump. I had to create a secondary pump to reduce the water level below 7 in order to get the water wheels to start generating power. Too bad there is no wind on this map for wind mills, it would have simplified a great deal.
There are also hatches here in the path of the brook that open to fill a large underground reservoir. This will be used to build up water pressure to hopefully flood the plain with enough water that it doesn't evaporate. - Zaltanek

Do you only see a blank space?
