  • Hydrant Flushing - 2024

    Description

    The City of Niagara Falls fire hydrant flushing program will began on April 2, 2024, and continue on into the fall of 2024. This is performed as part of a scheduled preventative maintenance program to help maintain good water quality and to improve water flow in your neighbourhood. The flushing will be moving to the areas bordered by Hwy 420, Drummond Rd, Dunn St, and the hydro canal (see map for further detail). If you reside in this area, you may notice a temporary decrease in your water pressure, and may experience discoloured water. If discolouration occurs, running a cold water tap closest to your water meter for a short period of time should alleviate the problem. Should you have any questions, concerns or persistent issues, please contact the Municipal Service Centre at 905-356-1355. The City’s Annual Water Report can be viewed online at www.niagarafalls.ca or in person at the Municipal Service Centre at 3200 Stanley Avenue.
