A workshop focusing on the rehabilitation and upgrade of hydropower facilities is among the co-located events being offered the week of HydroVision International 2011 in California.

The July 18 workshop, titled "Best Practices for Renewal and Upgrading of Hydropower Facilities to Maintain and Provide Value to the Power System," is organized by the International Energy Agency and Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

Preceding HydroVision International 2011, a wide range of topics, from fish passage design to generator maintenance, will be featured during a series of co-located workshops.

Workshops are being offered Monday, July 18, and Tuesday, July 19, during the week of HydroVision International, which will be held at the Sacramento Convention Center July 19-22.
