Searching the cause of the Falls' water issues


NIAGARA FALLS, NY – About 220 homes in Niagara Falls have now lost water service at some point, and the chilly forecasts could mean even more frozen water lines in the near future, according to Mayor Paul Dyster.

The city has created an emergency delivery system to ensure that every resident has access to water. Residents may dial (716) 286-4727 in the event of an emergency. The city has also opened fire halls for people to fill containers with water.


72nd Street in Niagara Falls has faced particular problems. Dyster estimated about 17 homes clustered on that street have lost water at some point. Last year, the freezing temperatures led to similar issues.

More than 200 Homes in Niagara Falls Without Water


Niagara Falls, NY – More than two-hundred homes in Niagara Falls do not have running water as of Wednesday night. That number could increase as the temperature falls overnight.

The only reason Rebecca Shea and her three children have running water is because her neighbors have allowed her landlord to hook up a hose connecting their water line to her house. It is the solution the Niagara Falls Water Board came up with.

"I should have running water. I shouldn't have to worry about that. It's just like when it starts getting really cold, you know, I'm like oh are the pipes going to freeze again?" says Shea.

Shea moved into her Royal Avenue home in Niagara Falls two years ago, and the water problems started almost right away.

Frozen water lines leave 200 without water in Falls


NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y.- About 200 homes are without water Wednesday evening because of frozen water lines.

Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster says his meeting with emergency management teams, and should know more about why the water lines are frozen later this evening.

Anyone who needs water can go to any Niagara Falls firehouse to pick some up any time Wednesday night.

If you still have running water, the Niagara Falls Water Board is asking people to run a small steady stream of water from the tap until further notice to help keep the lines from freezing.
