Health Editor’s Note: I found this to be a surprising occurrence. The ability to turn off Niagara Falls, can that really happen. For anyone who has been to the falls, this seems to be an impossible task when you see and hear the thundering falling and crashing water. The three falls that make up this “natural” phenomenon produce the highest flow rate of any waterfall in North America. Apparently the falls can be switched off when there is work to be done and this will not be the first time…amazing….Carol
When Niagara Falls Ran Dry
by Jim Crair Smithsonian Magazine
The performance will have an encore at some point in the coming years when New York State once again dewaters American Falls. The purpose this time is more pedestrian—to replace two bridges—but the process will be the same. Engineers will construct a dam between the American bank of the Niagara River and the eastern tip of Goat Island, stopping the flow of water—nearly 76,000 gallons every second—over the 11-story drop.
