Niagara Falls

volume of water: 150,000 U.S. Gallons per second

Actual amount varies, there are two hydroelectric plants which draw water into their
reservoirs prior to the Falls. Their intake greatly affects the volume of water flowing over
the falls. The amount of water being siphoned away depends on two variables. The time
of year, and the time of the day. Flow is greatest in the daytime during peak tourist
season (June, July, and August). In the event of an emergency the flow can be
somewhat reduced by the hydroelectric companies increasing their intake.
The Bridal Veil Falls is named for its appearance. It is located next to the American falls,
separated by a small piece of land called Luna Island.

Man has not been able to completely control the flow of the water over the falls, even modern
engineers have tried. Much of the water today is fed through underground channels and pipes to
nearby hydro electric power stations.
