Need help with microgrid hydroelectric installation.

We received an inquiry from a resident who would like to do a microgrid hydro installation on the brook behind his house. We are at a complete loss as to where to start with this type of installation. I would appreciate talking to any of you who may have dealt with this type of project. Any other steps (assuming wetlands, maybe DEEP) that we should be looking at? Please call me or email if you are familiar with this stuff.

EMERGENCY CALLS FOR INSPECTORS/BUILDING OFFICIALS

Hi Everyone,
In Hartford, we have a unique situation where we are on call 24/7 for Fire, Health and Human Services, Housing Code Enforcement and HPD. We rotate these by weekly assignments to our inspectors. Many of the calls are non-urgent. Backed up toilets, non-urgent electrical issues, wet sheetrock etc. We have recently begun to question the folks that call in to see if there really is a need to have an inspector respond immediately or can it wait until the next day or even the following Monday.
