Your not kidding I'm surprised they don't have a brewery there.I think water systems are gravity fed where it's possible, but pumps are added where gravity alone isn't capable of providing the required pressure.
In the UK at various places water is also pumped out from deep wells, these obviously can't be gravity fed
Here's an outstanding example, not far from me, that I've visited a number of times, including when it's in steam.

Beautiful place, but now the water is pumped by a small electric sytem in a small shed
Domestic water is not a closed loop system. All the energy that goes into increasing the pressure is lost as soon as you open the faucet. It does not get recycled back to the pumping station, it's just GONE. At this point is where you harvest some of that energy.Some of these guys are just not getting it.. If you acess the pressure side of your water system for generating power. that origional energy has to come from SOMEWHERE.
Chances are, It's from the water company using electric pumps, if you put a generator in it then that pump has to work harder! Simple fact. period. And as we all know any step in conversion of energy looses some , It will now work at 100% energy.. so why not just run a line from the water co's electrical mains, at least that way, you won't be stealing as much!
