In 1969, the Army Corps of Engineering grew concerned about erosion on the rock face of Niagara Falls. As this is one of the most important geological sites in the United States, they decided to de-water the Falls to conduct a geological survey. When they travelled to Niagara Falls to investigate, they made a shocking discovery that turned their blood cold.

Source Of Tourism
The Niagara Falls lies on the border between the United States and Canada and it attracts millions of tourists from across the world every year. This has been so for many, many years. Would there be a decline in tourism while they drained the Falls?
