Public Information Centre #1: Bender Hill Sanitary Pumping Station in Niagara Falls

Niagara Region has started a study to look at options for improving the Bender Hill Sewage Pumping Station located at 5615 River Rd. in Niagara Falls.

The station opened in 1962 and has serviced Niagara Falls during a variety of upgrades and maintenance over the years. Recent examinations of the site have shown that work must be done at the site to improve safety and repair old infrastructure. 


Reviews of the site show that the older infrastructure needs repairs and improvements. Also, this area is expected to grow with future development, and the site will need to increase its ability through infrastructure upgrades to keep up with the demand of pumping wastewater from the area. With this in mind, the Region is starting a Municipal Class EA Schedule ‘B’ Study to assess the site and find the preferred solutions to meet these needs.
