    BEAUTIFUL .... BUT WHY DO WE JUST WASTE SUCH AMOUNT OF , FREE , LARGE KINETIC ENERGY WITHOUT CONVERTING IT TO USEFUL WORK.......

    This shouldn't happen. Reservoirs should not spill off as soon as the rain falls in the catchment areas. Now it happens so because the catchment areas have been destroyed. Valuable water is wasted. Rain water should remain stored in the catchment areas for a long time.The spilling is only good for tourist attraction.
