Water hits a very small regularly oscillating structure and is deflected up and back towards the falls. I don't have a clue about the exact nature of the oscillating/vibrating structure but it is clear that the vibration is a stable frequency that separates the initial stream into discrete droplets upon reflection from/ passage through the vibrating structure.

bio-geeks out there - think about flow cytometric cell sorter nozzle transducer.

That can't be the explanation. That would mean the camera is capturing each water drop and effectively freezing the action. This is a 2 second exposure so each drop should show as a faint unbroken arc.
