How can we have hydropower on a small scale?

When hydropower is brought up, large damns and massive turbines are often pictured in many people’s minds. However, it tuns out that hydropower can be implemented on a much smaller scale. If hydropower infrastructure is under 10 MW, then it is classified as Small Hydropower in the United States. Small Hydropower can be established in a much more distributed and spread-out fashion.
