JC even before didn't always look impressive. As I said it is essentially clean thundering, gets progressively worse. At some point the filters completely clog and the pumps do an "auto shutoff" to prevent them from burning out (air is a great deal less dense then water causing the pumps to overheat if it wasn't for the safety off. At which point Facilities would come out and clean the filters. The new "gush" of water would then push most of the debris over the falls cleaning out the top and the process would start over. For a lot of us it was really a special moment when the falls were off. It used to be absolutely silent without the falls (stupid gorilla camp). There were several jokes, but bottom line it was really kinda cool when it was off.
I actually thought you would comment on the other three waterfalls, which sadly clog a great deal faster and almost never get cleaned out. One of them is actually a bad design and usually ends up not running (empties into the lagoon across from the shack).
Isn't this an indication that the average amount of time between clogs needs to be worked out, divided by two and added to a maintenance schedule somewhere? What is it with some places and their "wait til it breaks" maintenance mind set?

Disney FAQ#275: What is DCA?
DCA stands for Disney Construction Area. All the Cast Members are themed with hard hats and steel toed boots.
The old Jungle Cruise falls were always impressive and fun to go by in a boat. The new pathetic dribble that now comes out is embarrassing to call falls. I say do it right or don't do it at all.
One falls at Disneyland has become a hidden secret. At the end of Country Bears Jambouree there was a really wonderful falls that guests crossed exiting that set a get mood to the end of the attraction. The falls were always seeming to have life to them, moving at a good clip. I think of it as part of the post-show for CBJ.
Now the falls are still there, but overgrown with vegetation. It seems to have nothing to do with Pooh at all.

I love the falls at DLH but they area to walk under them has always been closed
If you go under the hat, follow the path to the left (at the pool). Keep going and they're on the right. Then go to the koi pond that's just past them - it stretched under the walkway!
Good morning, son
In twenty years from now
Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
And I can tell you 'bout today
And how I picked you up and everything changed
It was pain
Sunny days and rain
I knew you'd feel the same things...
