Melting spring snow 5 million gallons of water
Melting spring snow 5 millions gallons of water. In this VLOG, we answer the question. Where does all of the snow go that melts in spring?
Once the snow starts to melt it forms streams high up in the Alps these streams can only travel one way, down. Some of the streams make their way into high alpine reservoirs and are used to feed hydropower stations around Austria. The other streams flow downhill creating waterfalls like this one in Krimml Salzburgland Europes tallest 380m three-tier waterfall. The water can flow at around 5 million gallons an hour and forms the Salzach fiver which will then flow all the way from the Krimml waterfall to the black sea next to Romania. This summer the Krimml waterfall has been in full flow due to the large amount of snow that fell in Austria over the winter which is still melting well into July 2019
