A dam atop the Great Falls connects Somersworth, New Hampshire, to Berwick, Maine. Last year's drought exposes both sides of the river.

The Salmon Falls, a river separating a section of Maine and New Hampshire, once powered mills along its way.

Gates for the Great Falls Manufacturing Co. controlled the flow of water to the mills in Somersworth.
