Massive boulder puts Colorado hydroelectric plant out of operation

 

A boulder the size of a pool table badly damaged the oldest operating hydropower plant in the U.S. in Ouray, Colorado this past week.

The boulder sheared off a canyon wall and not only destroyed a metal walkway to the Ice Ice Park’s popular ice climbs but also ripped out the penstock that ferries water to the hydropower plant according to the Colorado Sun.
