Niagara Falls Falls Water Treatment Plant to Shut Down for Maintenance
A Niagara Falls Water treatment plant is expected to shut down for maintenance in early November as the city works to keep the city’s water supply stable, the Niagara Falls Health Department announced Friday.
The Niagara Falls Public Works Department said the plant, located at the former Niagara Falls Golf Course, will shut down Nov. 19 for two days to fix issues with the water quality.
The company said the closure will be effective Nov. 21, two days after the water is officially pumped out.
The facility will be closed until Nov. 23 to allow the company to test and inspect water quality, according to the announcement.
The city’s Department of Health said the company will operate water from the facility until Nov 22.
The water quality inspection is expected be completed in late November, when the plant will reopen for normal operation, according the department.
The announcement comes just days after a group of protesters at the golf course demanded an end to a long-running battle over water supply between the city and the private water company that supplies the city with water.
