Capital Improvements

Investing in Niagara Falls


The Niagara Falls Water Board has embarked on an ambitious Capital Improvement Plan to upgrade and improve the City’s aging water and wastewater infrastructure.  From 2022 to 2026, the Niagara Falls Water Board plans tremendous investments totaling over $46 million to implement projects necessary to meet the City’s water and wastewater demands – now and into the future.

The CIP includes repair, replacement, and upgrades to treatment plants, water and sewer mains, technology, and more.  It also includes mandated projects and rehabilitation of assets necessary to meet permit and other regulatory requirements.

The Capital Improvement Plan is a dynamic and evolving plan that will be subject to frequent review and modification, and the estimated costs may change as projects progress.  It guides long-term planning for necessary improvements.  By understanding anticipated capital projects, proper financial planning is aided, avoiding dramatic unexpected rate increases.  The Capital Improvement Plan makes reasonable assumptions regarding sources of funding, including ratepayer funds, grants, and bonds.
