  • Public Notice - Hydro One Tree and Vegetation Maintenance

    Description

    Hydro One is working in your community to ensure a safe and continued supply of power to the City of Niagara Falls.
    To keep the power on, our crews need to make sure a safe distance exists between power lines, trees and other vegetation. This important work also keeps the corridor safe for public use and gives our crews access to the power lines for regular maintenance and emergency repairs.

    that will pose a risk to the electricity system.
    As part of this work Hydro One crews will be:
    - Removing trees and other vegetation that, when mature, can grow into or near the power lines and towers.
    - Trim and remove trees and other vegetation that, when mature, can fall into the power lines and towers.

    If work is required on your private property, a Forestry Technician will contact you in advance.

  • Hydrant Flushing Program: September & October 2021

    Description

    The City of Niagara Falls is continuing their fire hydrant flushing program throughout the months of September and October. 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 is currently taking place in the general areas bordered by Thorold Stone Road, Stanley Avenue, Ferry Street and River Road (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.
