South Edwards Quadrangle

On a stretch of the Oswegatchie River near the Edwards/Fine town line and between the South Edwards Dam and Grease Falls, there are five drops. 

The information and pictures on this location were submitted by a contributor.  The property around it is owned by Erie Boulevard Hydro so it probably posted.  This is a water access only situation.

This drop is just over one mile upstream from the canoe launch.  In keeping with our policy of giving names to these unnamed falls based on the waterway they are on, and since this is the first of the drops you encounter from the canoe launch, we have chosen this name.  It should not be confused with Oswegatchie Falls, which is about 1.25 miles downstream from this location.

The Oswegatchie River flows to the St. Lawrence River in the city of Ogdensburg.
