Portage Trunk Sewer Rehabilitation
All Niagara Region projects

About the project

Niagara Region has started the preliminary and detailed design for improvements to the Portage Trunk Sewer in Niagara Falls. The sewer is in poor condition and needs repair.

The sewer is located along a hydro corridor between the rear yards of Sheldon Street and Darcy Crescent / Maplewood Avenue. Sewage from the Kalar Road Sewage Pumping Station flows into the trunk sewer at an access point. This access point is south of the rear fence line at 6606 Sheldon Ave. The sewer continues east for about 1.3 kilometres before discharging to the Stamford Interceptor. It then finally reaches the Niagara Falls Wastewater Treatment Plant.
