I don't know if some people know this or not, but the amount of water flowing over the Niagara is not at it's full capacity. I've been to the falls many times, and it never fails to amaze me. If you ever get a chance, take a ride on the "Maid of the Mist." You can really feel the force of the water at the base of the falls. You won't see much because of the mist and the amount of water that is thrown into your face, lol.



The amount of water being siphoned away depends on two variables. The time of year, and the time of the day. Flow is greatest over the Falls 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.

Not at capacity?? It's only 25 percent of what nature intended! It should be three times as strong, three times as much water, but the Tesla electrical grid came in and gobbled up the water. Only 25 percent, and people still love it.

I've often wondered if any old footage exists of when it was the "real" Niagara Falls.

Very nice... S&F

Unfortunately I live 10 mins away from Niagara falls so very little impresses me about it anymore.... Its still an amazing spectacle to see though

Just so you guys know... They keep the flow as low as possible to slow the erosion of the falls...

IF they let er rip, it would keep carving out the gorge all the way to lake erie... which would destroy a lot of things in a very short time...

IF you take a look at this video you can see all the area that would be consumed if they let the falls go full blast... Plus we would lose the old barge that is just up the river... that would be tragic.

Most people have never heard of the old barge but its been there for a long time... on occasion it actually moves and everyone thinks its gonna go over the falls but it keeps getting trapped on the rocks... so we get to keep it for a while longer...

I finally watched the video and although the vid is nice it is sad also to see the small amount of water flowing down the river and over the falls. This is just 25 percent of what it should be, what nature "intended" before humans had to step in and harness the water like a slave for electrical power. It would be so nice to see footage of what the Falls looked like before humans interfered. Even a computer simulation would be interesting. A good vid, but it only hints on what should be.

I know about the electrical power, and the only other reason I can think of is that it would erode back the falls a little every day, and in X number of years the tourist trap which is Niagara Falls would have to move upstream. Am I close?

you're spot on actually

IF it was a full capacity it would destroy a lot of real estate in only a few years... the ground in that area is not all rock... One only has to take a trip down the gorge and see its mostly dirt... The falls would rip out a huge gash all the way to lake erie.. and the destruction would be very unpredictable

Plus we'd lose our little boat that stuck on the rocks only a little ways up.... that would be tragic...

check the video I posted
