  4. Thanks, Shelly Gunderson. The power station is no longer used. It's been unused, I believe, since the 1970s. I watched a video about it that stated it was shut down due to the underlying bed rock starting to fracture from the intense vibrations from the power generators. I also read that it was shut down due to newer hydro plants being built in the Niagara Falls area.

  5. Here's a link to the video I watched on the power station. It's fairly short, just over 3 minutes. youtube.com - Niagara Power Generating Plant
