  • Hydrant Flushing Program: May 2022

    Description

    The City of Niagara Falls began its annual fire hydrant flushing program in April of 2022, and the program will continue into the fall of this year. 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. During times of flushing, 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. Flushing is currently occurring within the area bordered by highway 420, Niagara River Parkway, Dunn Street and Drummond Road. Please see map for an illustration of this area. Updates will be provided throughout the year, as the City rotates through flushing areas. 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

  • Dorchester Road Reconstruction

    Description

    The City of Niagara Falls (City) has initiated a project to complete miscellaneous underground infrastructure repairs and full road reconstruction on Dorchester Road from 120m South of Jubilee Drive to 100m North of Cooper Drive.

    Dorchester Road within the project area will receive a full road reconstruction, including the installation of new curb and gutter, asphalt pavement and 1.5m wide concrete sidewalk on both sides of the street. The reconstruction will entail widening Dorchester Road to a 10.0m road width. This is to enable a 1.5m wide curbside bicycle lane to be provided in each direction.

    Please note that the City’s construction schedule is tentative and subject to change based on coordination needs with Regional projects, availability of the City’s Contractor, scheduling of private utility relocations and receipt of the necessary easements, permits and approvals. Tentatively, the City is proposing tendering the project in April of 2022 with construction to commence in late spring/early summer of 2022 with continuous work being substantially completed by the end summer of 2022.

    Should you require any additional information, or wish to schedule a formal meeting, please contact Nick Golia directly at 905-356-7521, ext. 4290 or by email at [email protected].
