Niagara Falls ready to flush for annual maintenance


Published August 4, 2021 at 7:23 pm


The water will be flowing in Niagara Falls for the next two months and no, this isn’t about the famous falls itself.

This time, they’re taking it to the streets.

During August and September, the City will be continuing their fire hydrant flushing program.

“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 city said in a release.

At the moment, the flushing is taking place in the general areas bordered by Dorchester Road, Thorold Stone Road, the East City border and the Northern City border.

The city said that residents in this area “may notice a temporary decrease in your water pressure, and may experience discoloured water.”

Should that happen, they are instructed that “running a cold water tap closest to your water meter for a short period of time should alleviate the problem.”

If problems persist, residents should call the Municipal Service Centre at 905-356-1355.
