Water Treatment & Distribution
The Water Department manages the City of Lockport’s potable water supply and distribution. The city’s primary source of water is the east branch of the Niagara River, with water pumped 13 miles through a 30-inch forced main line to the Lockport Water Treatment Plant on Summit Street.
The department also works with the mayor and Common Council to establish policies regarding the use of public water sources and fire hydrants, as well as the maintenance of these public systems.
For emergency issues outside of normal office hours, call the Lockport Police Department at 716.433.7700.
