Niagara Falls High School closed Tuesday as water crews unable to repair broken main

Niagara Falls High School will be closed again Tuesday because of low water pressure, caused by a break in a concrete water main which serves much of the city.

The Niagara Falls Water Board announced Monday that the break is beyond the capacity of its crews to fully repair, and outside contractors will have to be hired.

The 36-inch main and three valves failed Friday near the corner of Niagara Falls Boulevard and 47th Street. The Water Board said pressure was restored to the high school late Monday afternoon, but Superintendent Mark R. Laurrie decided to keep the school closed.

"At this point, no specific duration has been determined for how long the fix may take,” Water Board Executive Director Rolfe Porter said.
