Q: Does the Town have a rain barrel program?
“Beginning in October of 2006, the Town instituted a rain barrel program, however, it was limited to residents in the Niagara Urban Service Area study area (generally bounded by William, Nassau, Queen, and Regent Streets (see brochure under “What’s New” page)). The program was initiated as part of the Town’s Remedial Action Plan to reduce/eliminate stormwater and groundwater inflow and infiltration into the sanitary sewer system. In subsequent years the program was extended to all residents in the municipality but unfortunately, as a result of budget constraints, the program funding was discontinued at the end of 2019. At this time there are no plans to revive the rain barrel program.”
