West Virginia Waterfalls
Once regarded as a single river by Native Indians, the Great Kanhaway is made up of the New and Kanawha rivers today. The New-Kanawha River Basin takes in a third of West Virginia's territory, and is viewed as the state's most important river. Navigable for 20 miles upriver from Charleston, the waterway is an important artery for industrial commerce. With large reserves of coal and natural gas, the area adds a large boost to the state's economy.
