Can spillways be hydro electric as well?

    The purpose of a spillway is to relieve pressure on the dam caused by high water or flood events. Once a reservoir is full, the spillway is used to release water downstream.  Putting something like a turbine in place would back up the water and the purpose of the spillway would be subverted.
