Making the Grade

Making  the Grade

On the Canadian side of the Niagara River, there are two existing water tunnels under the city of Niagara Falls, both constructed in the 1950s using drill-and-blast techniques. The tunnels take water from the Niagara River 1.6 kilometres above Horseshoe Falls and feed it to the Sir Adam Beck power stations located eight kilometres downstream.
