The Niagara Falls consists of three waterfalls: the Horseshoe Falls (also known as Canadian Falls), the American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls. These three waterfalls combined have the highest flow rate in North America. They are known for their sheer beauty and their industrial use, as Niagara Falls, has been a valuable and efficient source of hydroelectric power through the years.
In summer, most water flowing over Niagara Falls drops over Horseshoe Falls, with 10 percent diverted to hydroelectric.
