OE COAL SAVED BY
Without Damage To The Scenic
Beauty of Niagara, Elec-
trical Power is Develop-
ed For Surround-
Niagara Falls, N. Y., Nov. 20.
-In view of the widespread
movement for the conservation 6f
natural resources, some figures
given out by the Commerce Com-
mission of this edt.y, about pow-
er development along the Nia-
gara River, are significant.
% the use of only the excess
of water—without damage to the
appearance of the Falls—power*)
equivalent to that produced by
6,700,000 tons of coal is turned
out every year on the Niagara;
River. As 6,700,000 tons of coal,
at the price prevailing here,
would cost about $18,959,000, the
utilization by the water for pow-
er represents an annual saving
of that amount of money.
The quantity of water that can
be used1 for power is limited by j
law and international treaty, so
tliait there is no danger of dam-
Age to the scenjc beauty of Nia-
gara. The restrictions are such
that only a very mnaU proportion
of the total flow ean be used.
The power concerns are also co-
operating with the Canadian and
New Yorkk State Governments
to make and kkeep the shore
lines beautiful. <
Of course it is out of question
that the Nation widl ever permit
Niagara's waters to be converted
into electricity up to a point
where the scenic grandeur of the j
Falls would be affected. ftut:
a calculation of the potential.
energy of this great cataract is
iillum inating as to the vast water
power wealth now going to
waste in this country. Figured
in the cost of coal that could be
saved, the total amount of water
running over the Falls represents
an annual fflyod of $203,148,000,
and a yearly consumption of VI,-
280,000 tons of coal. In a period
of ten years the total power of
Niagara would be worth $2,031,-
