Statement from Mayor Dyster on Niagara River Discharge Investigation

[Press Release]

Today, Mayor Paul A. Dyster issued the following statement regarding Saturday’s discharge of wastewater into the lower Niagara River:

“Niagara Falls Police in partnership with the New York State Department of Conservation are actively investigating the matter. No further comments will be made until the investigation has run its course. While it is important to note that we regularly partner on items of importance to residents, the Niagara Falls Water Board operates independently of city government. I am disappointed in the unfortunate lapse in communication regarding Saturday’s incident and look forward to the Board’s full cooperation in their efforts to rectify the situation.”
