White water stadium
White water stadiums can have different water supply systems. The easiest is gravity as, in this case, the river supplies water to the white water stadium. A gate can be installed upstream the course in order to regulate the river flow.
In this case (pumping system), a pumping station supplies the white water stadium This permit to bring up water from the arrival to the departure. Flows of this type of white water stadiums are adjustables easily.
Sometimes, it can occure that natural gravity water supply is not enougth to operate the white water stadium. In this case, we add an other type of water supply, a pumping station in order to fill this lacke of water.
It is possible to use the tide to create a white water stadium. The principle consists in stocking water during the rising tide and to return this water during the low tide. Thus, the functionning of the white water stadium is continuous.
