Iron-turbine has replaced the wooden turbine of the water mills in Dehradun in Uttarakhand, India. Though a small step, it is proving to be a huge leap. Iron turbine-driven watermills churned out more employment opportunities. The watermills have long been used to generate power here. The generated power ran various kinds of grind mills like flour, oil and even handlooms. A big advantage of water mills is increased reliance on local resources, making use of almost no direct imports.
