They called it “Totowa,” to sink or be forced down beneath the waters by weight, a tribute to this awesome mass of water. Others have called it “ Passaic Falls ”. Today it is commonly known as the “ Great Falls ,” which distinguishes from the Little Falls and describes it well.

- During construction a tar like substance is applied to the exterior of the concrete foundation before the backfill is done.
- Tar is a very good sealer against a wet basement and is good for 30 years or so.
- The tar coating is similar in substance and life to roofing shingles which don’t last forever and neither does the tar on the foundation.
- Once the tar is gone the foundation is no longer sealed and the porous concrete is laid bare.
- Therefore, unless you have re-sealed the foundation, if you had a wet basement before you will again.
