The Wallkill River at Walden, New York, produced hydroelectric power from 1909 to 1966. Using turbines dating back to the original hydroelectric development, the Walden hydroelectric station is again producing power. Besides the refurbished turbines, the Walden Hydroelectric Project makes use of electric motors run in reverse and gasoline storage tanks to generate its power. The history and unique combination of components of the Walden Hydroelectric Project are described.
