Niagara Falls Without Water: How This Everlasting Beauty Looks At That Time

Panoramic_View_of_Niagara_Falls

Niagara Falls seems quite beautiful and splendid with all the ice and recently we get the chance to see it like that because of the Polar Vortex. It is something common to see at Niagara Falls, but indeed it holds timeless beauty as well.

But this post isn’t about dazzling falling water or frozen ice of Niagara Falls; it is about the dewatering of one part of this wonderful place. This incidence was the happening of 1969 which lasts till the late fall.

Here given the images of the Niagara Falls without water; but before totally understanding them, you need to know the reason.

Niagara Falls consists of three waterfalls. On one side of the Goat Island, there is large Horseshoe Falls and on the other side American and Bridal Veil Falls. The dewatering only affected the later and most of the water started to move to Horseshoe Falls.

This is the map:

It was a really big project. 600-foot cofferdam was built with the help of 28,000 tons of earth and rock. It was done to check the geology of these falls; as there was a large deposit of rock and debris at the base of the fall. These rock falls were the reason behind the investigation.

However, after a long time of debates and disapproval by the public, the International Joint Commission stopped the dam building and on November 25, 1969, all the rocks were removed. International Joint Commission checks the falls and their related affairs.

It is the normal and beautiful condition of the American Falls. Photo credit goes to the Flicker user Ian Glover.

Even at the time of dewatering, many tourists came to watch the falls that summer. Surely, that wasn’t a perfect time to visit. So many pictures of Niagara Falls without water can also be enjoyed on the Niagara Falls Public Library website.
