Overflows contain mostly Storm Water

While the volume of an overflow may seem large, the amount of untreated sewage present in the overflow is small when compared to the amount of stormwater or snow melt.

Niagara typically treats about 80,000 megalitres of sewage each year.  The vast majority of wastewater discharged into the sewer system receives full treatment and only a small percentage of this sewage overflows. These overflows usually only occur during periods of heavy rain or during seasonal snow melts.
