Rainbow Falls Quadrangle

There are dozens of power dams that now dot the Raquette River in this section.  Many of the dams are at locations of waterfalls and some of them have replaced the waterfall that used to be there.  This is a slightly different situation.

Little Falls is one of three historical waterfalls in this area listed by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).  This former waterfall is just downstream of the power plant at Blake Falls Dam.  It is in the channel of the Raquette River between Rainbow Falls Reservoir and Blake Falls Reservoir.

The Raquette River empties into the St. Lawrence River in Massena, New York.
