NIAGARA FALLS – The city’s damaged sewage treatment plant is back online, thanks to the installation of five temporary pumps, the city announced Friday morning.

Most of the city’s sewage had been flowing untreated into the Niagara River after a storm shut down most operations at the Buffalo Avenue plant July 19.

With the temporary pumps online, the plant will be treating 23 million to 24 million gallons of sewage daily.
