I found the site for Tahquamenon Falls (Root Beer Falls) in Michigan.|
The Cohoes Falls today have been damed extensively and very little water flows over them.
The Cohoes Falls are 75 feet (23 m) high and 1,000 feet (305 m) wide. Their flow is most impressive in springtime, sometimes running at 90,000 cubic feet (2,500 m3) of water per second, but as the season changes there is less water for the falls because so much of the flow is diverted at the Crescent Dam to the Barge Canal through Lock 6. Most of the water is still diverted for power generation; some is diverted for the Cohoes water supply. During the summer, the falls are virtually dry, revealing shale rock formations that have their own distinctive beauty.
The Beaver Brook Cascades are a series of small falls (hence Cascades) and do not count as one large Fall.
Also Crabtee Falls consist of five cascades rather than one large Fall.
