Abstract:

The Niagara River and Falls model study was conducted for the purposes of a determining the effects on the Niagara River and Falls of additional diversions of water for power, b determining the type of remedial works required, and c developing plans for preservation of the scenic beauty of the Falls. The study was conducted on a fixed-bed-type model constructed to linear scale ratios, model to prototype, of 1 to 360 horizontally and 1 to 60 vertically. The model reproduced the 26-mile reach of the Niagara River extending from approximately 11,500 ft above Peace Bridge opposite Buffalo, N. Y. to Rainbow Bridge about 5000 ft below the Falls. Author
