We had a basement full of electronic equipment that ended up with a water mark about a foot up the wall.  Sadly there was also a sub-basement full of gear.

It was bound to happen, sooner or later. Someone forgot to shut off the juice. Get a bucket! We paid good money for that 'lectricity!

If you dump the bucket upstream of Bonneville Dam, it's renewable energy.

The streams look separated enough that you might be able to stick meter probes directly into the water and measure the outlet voltage. That would be fun and terrifying at the same time.

Please, nobody should actually try to do this.
