Dain City Forcemain Replacement
All Niagara Region projects

About the project

The Dain City Sewage Pump Station forcemain, which directs flow from the Dain City Sewage Pumping Station to the Ontario Road Sewage Pumping Station, is being replaced under the Dain City Emergency Forcemain Replacement Program.

The proposed forcemain in Phase 4b will be installed using trenchless technology (horizontal directional drilling) to limit impact on the roadway.

During construction there may be lane closures on Canal Bank Street and Townline Tunnel Road weekdays between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.. At least one lane of traffic will be maintained during the project.
