Cascade keeps carrying water

Hello. I am trying to write a sentence about some high-mountain brooks and cascades, in Sierra Nevada, Spain, and the amount of water they carry in summer. I was wondering if "carry water" is the correct way to describe the amount of water flowing. Here is the sentence: "Some cascades diminish the volume of water they carry in summer but they keep showing always the beauty of the mountains"
Thanks in advance for your kind cooperation.

    "Some cascades diminish the volume of water they carry in summer...
    :thumbsup: Carry is just fine here.

    but they keep showing always the beauty of the mountains"
    The word order and the logic are a little odd. It would make sense to say that they contributed to the beauty of the mountains or something similar: ...they carry in summer, but they always contribute a lot to the beauty of the mountains.

    You might decide that contribute is too bland and go for something else. That is fine, but be choosy when you pick a verb for the second clause.
