This is the best thing I could find.

Calculation of Hydro Power - Hydro

I plugged some numbers in for fun to see what comes out. I used .1 meters of head. I then used 680 liters of flow per second (base off really rough calculations that I'm unsure of and I assumed 2 mph water). This gave 667W of hydro power and 400W @ 60% efficiency.
