Spinning just above the main floor to the left, you can watch this primary belt driving the Buhr Mill below.

How much water does it take to power the Grist Mill?
To run the generator and the Buhr Mill requires 47 gallons per second!
That's 2829 gallons per minute and 170,000 gallons per hour.
That's a bit over 11 tons of water per minute.
