In 1950 the United States and Canada signed a treaty fixing the amount of water that could be diverted from the river for power generation, and soon thereafter two major hydroelectric projects were constructed. The Canadians built the twin Sir Adam Beck-Niagara generating stations (completed 1958; capacity, with associated pumped-storage facility, 1,815,000 km) at Queenston, Ontario. The Power Authority of the State of New York constructed the Robert Moses-Niagara Power Plant (completed 1963; capacity, with associated pumped-storage facility, 2,400,000 km) near Lewiston, New York. Both projects, each located about 6 km (about 4 mi) below Niagara Falls, are driven by water diverted just above the falls and conveyed by underground conduits and canals to turbines. Much of the hydroelectricity is consumed by industries in the nearby cities of Niagara Falls, New York, and Niagara Falls, Ontario.
Niagara Falls is a great tourist attraction, luring millions of visitors each year. The falls may be viewed from parks located on either side of the river, from observation towers, from boats, from Goat Island, and from the Rainbow Bridge, located a short distance downstream. Visitors also may enter the Cave of the Winds, situated behind a curtain of falling water near the base of the American Falls.
I’ve seen Niagara waterfall only on the photos, but even through them you can feel the power of the water and you feel connected with it. I think Niagara Falls is a paradise on the Earth, a place where you can enjoy the beauty of the whole world. It’s the centre of our planet, where a man can feel the connection with the nature.
So I described the most beautiful things for me, but, of course, for someone else they can be completely different. I believe that there are no ugly things in the world as there are no unsightly people. Everything has its own beauty; the problem is that not everyone is able to see this beauty.
