Niagara River. Satellite image of Niagara River (down centre) on the US-Canada border. North is at top. Canadian land is at left, while US land is at right. This short river flows from south to north, draining Lake Erie into Lake Ontario. This part of the river is just north of Niagara Falls (not seen here). Some of the water is diverted from above the falls to form two reservoirs: Ontario Hydro Reservoir (centre) and Power Reservoir (far right). The area of white foam between the two is where falling water is being used to generate electricity. The town of Niagara Falls is across bottom. Agricultural fields are at upper left.
