-The plant is located on 3450 Stanley Avenue , Niagara Falls ON.-The Niagara Falls WWTP is owned and operated by the Regional Municipality of Niagara. This plant serves the city of niagara falls which has a population of approximately 83 000.- For a city that has 83,000 residents, and millions more from tourism each year they are still releasing 89% less than Hamilton’s WWTP. -During 2006, there was a total of 32 plant bypasses. Releasing a total of 479,547,000 litres of minimul treated waste water into Lake Ontario-During 2006, the average daily flow was 68,200,000 litres, and peak flow rates were 136,400,000 litres. Even with these high amounts, the plant was still able to comply with the MOE standards for effluent. -In 2011, the Niagara WWTP recieved 5 million dollars from the Ontario Provincial Government and another 5 million from the Canadian Federal Government for several new upgrades.

Niagara Falls WWTP increases methane production that can be used as an aternative energy source

Installation of new polymer storage, makeup, and injection system to provide chemically enhanced primary treatment (CEPT)Installation of second standby power generator in new building adjacent to existing buildingReplacement of existing raw sewage pumps with new larger pumps to increase peak wet weather flow capacity from 35 (MGD) Million Gallons per day to 54 (MGD) Million Gallons per day .

Wastewater pump stations are a critical component of the wastewater treatment system,

In 2006, The Niagara Falls WWTP had accidently released a total of 7,078,681 litres of sewage over 183 different occasions.

Most of the time, combined sewer systems move all of their wastewater to a sewage treatment plant, where it is treated and then discharged to a water body. During periods of heavy rainfall or snowmelt, the wastewater volume in a combined sewer system can exceed the capacity of the sewer system or treatment plant.
