I found these two great resources on low head dam

The video shows an amazing demonstration at the power and danger of such dams and hydrolics

and this PDF from Indiana. This has historical information as well as very good descriptions and diagrams of low head dams

Everyone should take a comple of minutes to look over these resouces.
