Ontario Street Watermain Replacement
All Niagara Region projects

About the project

Niagara Region is improving its transmission watermain system by replacing approximately 1.7 km along Ontario Street between King Street and Greenlane Road in Lincoln. In 2019, there was a watermain break in the existing pipe. The break caused a major service disruption to the area. During repairs, Niagara Region discovered the watermain was in very poor condition. Providing safe, reliable drinking water is a primary objective of Niagara Region. To avoid future problems that would negatively affect the community of Beamsville, it's necessary to replace the watermain.

The Town of Lincoln is also proposing to replace and upsize approximately 1.7 km of sanitary sewer along the same stretch of road, to address aging infrastructure and to meet future growth demands for the area.

The category of this project is a Schedule "A+" Project, according to the Municipal Engineers Association Municipal Class Environmental Assessment document (2000, as amended in 2007, 2011, and 2015). Though Schedule A+ Projects are pre-approved, Niagara Region has a duty to inform the general public, external agencies, and Indigenous communities and organizations before the project begins.
