15081Greatest waterfall annual flowInga Falls910000 cubic metre(s), Kinshasa Congo, Democratic Republic of theThe largest waterfall based on average volume is the Inga Falls on the Congo River in the west of the Democratic Republic of Congo, which has a discharge rate of 910,000 cu ft/sec (25,768 m³/sec). According to the World Waterfall Database, which monitors the tallest and most voluminous waterfalls on the planet, the falls have a height of 315 ft (96 m) and a run of 50,000 ft (15,240 m), with a maximum width of 13,200 ft (4,023 m) and tallest single drop of 70 ft (21 m).There is some debate on whether or not the Inga Falls can be considered a true waterfall, as it can be defined as a series of rapids that drop gentle over a long course. However, the World Waterfall Database attests to its status as a waterfall the entry for Inga reads: "Even with the portion of the river diverted into the hydro facilities [the Inga hydroelectric dams], Inga Falls is the largest waterfall by volume on the planet. Many, if not most accounts seem to discount it as nothing but rapids but we suspect that the most substantial portion of the falls are actually quite steep and can be legitimately considered to be a true waterfall (though not the full 315 feet worth). Whether the total drop in the 15 miles of river that is usually attributed to the falls can be counted as its full drop remains to be seen."
