NEWS RELEASE
NIAGARA REGION
*************************
‚ÄčNiagara Region is investing in infrastructure to serve current and future residents and businesses in Niagara, with a plan for a new wastewater treatment plant in the South Niagara Falls area.

Niagara Region is planning ahead. We are working with the cities of Niagara Falls and Thorold on an important study for a new wastewater treatment plant in South Niagara Falls, and to improve the sewer system. As a result, we will be better able to protect the environment, create new jobs and infrastructure to support new local investment, and ensure our management of wastewater is more efficient and effective.

WHO:

Project team members from Niagara Region and GM BluePlan Engineering Limited will be available to answer questions from the public at an upcoming public information centre on Wednesday, Nov. 20 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the MacBain Community Centre in Niagara Falls.

For those who cannot attend the public information centre, there will be a Facebook Live stream from 3 to 4 p.m. on Niagara Region’s Facebook page and it will also be posted on the South Niagara Falls Wastewater Project page afterwards for residents to watch at their convenience.

At this public information centre, residents will learn more about the Environmental Assessment process and the need for the project. The public will be able to see the long list of potential sites for the new wastewater treatment plant as well as have the chance to comment and provide input into the evaluation process and criteria. Your feedback will help the team evaluate the preferred site, outfall location and sewer routes.
