Active Energy: Three Mills Invitation to the launch of the new turbine – 3.30 – 5pm Saturday 13th May 2017
At National Mills Weekend
Loraine Leeson and The Geezers invite you to celebrate their latest venture in the Active Energy arts project. A floating water wheel is being placed in the River Lee close to an historic tidal mill. The outflow from the mill pool will turn the wheel, which will then drive an aerator to oxygenate the water and counteract the effects of pollution on the river’s fish and wildlife.
This latest phase of Active Energy is supported by the Hydrocitizenship initiative. Engineer Toby Borland has worked with the team, advised by Thames 21’s Love the Lea, to realise the project. The wheel’s low-cost open source design will be posted on the project web site so that others can take up the idea.
