Our mandate provides for ownership, operation and maintenance of municipal water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure within specific boundaries set by Halifax Regional Municipality.
In order to establish, as far as practicable, uniformity of practice within the Halifax Municipality, these specifications have been developed by staff of Halifax Water. They are to be used as the minimum standards to be met in the design and installation of municipal Water, Wastewater and Stormwater Systems within the Halifax Municipality.
