posed. to break forth for their barriers of rock and
again leap beneath the sunshine and stars to the
Pacific ocean beyond. Our Thousand Springs
power plant site represents a njnst unique and elab
orate problem requiring the greatest engineering
skill to solve.
Power From Wasto of Lost Rivers
Hero at Thousand Springs, where the water is boil
ing out from subterranean channels 18H foot above
the Snake river at a temperature of about (50 de
grees Fahrenheit, wo have constructed a groat har
ness of cement and stool which collects those waters
that formerly wont to waste and generates them into
power that can be delivered hundreds of miles away
to homos and farms which otherwise would bo with
out light or power.
One Unit of a Groat System '
In 11)12 the first unit of the Thousand Springs plant
was completed, with a generating capacity of 2700
horsepower. The now unit, now under construction
will generate 8000 horsepower, making this plant,
capable of producing I'.I.IHH) horsepower of electrical'
energy. Most of this will be used for irrigation
purposes in the .summertime for pumping from
the Snake river to make the parched lands spring in
to waving fields of alfalfa, wheat and other grains,
or become checkered with fruitful orchards.
Thousand Springs plant is only one unit of our groat
system of electrical development. Wo are offering
