Where is Niagara Falls ?Collectively they are called "Niagara Falls" Categorized by these three names:American Falls (between Prospect Point and Luna Island) far left. Bridal Veil Falls (between Luna Island and Goat Island) mid left. Canadian Falls (between Goat Island and Table Rock) right .Length of brink: 1060 feet /323.08 metersHeight: 176 feet / 53.6 meters (due to rocks at the base actual fall is 70 feet/ 21.3 meters)Volume of water: 150,000 U.S. Gallons / 567,811 Liters per second. Actual amount varies, there are two hydroelectric plants which draw water into their reservoirs prior to the Falls. Their intake greatly affects the volume of water flowing over the falls.The amount of water being siphoned away depends on two variables. The time of year, and the time of the day. Flow is greatest over the Falls in the daytime during peak tourist season (June, July, and August). In the event of an emergency the flow can be somewhat reduced by the hydroelectric companies increasing their intake.The Bridal Veil Falls is named for its appearance. It is located next to the American falls, separated by a small piece of land called Luna Island.
