Halifax is one of Canada’s oldest cities, and with that comes aging water and sewer infrastructure that needs renewal.
Over the next 30 years, Halifax Water plans to invest about $2.6 billion to upgrade infrastructure to ensure the continued delivery of high quality water, wastewater and storm water services to benefit our customers and the environment. Below are some of the projects currently underway at Halifax Water.
Customer Connect is an initiative to upgrade our technology. Customer Connect will increase customer convenience, improve our infrastructure to help protect the environment, and prepare you and Halifax Water for the future.
Ellenvale Run Rehabilitation Project - Phase 2
Stormwater flows through Ellenvale Run from Lemont Lake to Morris Lake. Phase 2 of this rehabilitation project focuses on replacement of the retaining walls along the 180 metre portion of Ellenvale Run between John Cross Drive and Elwin Crescent.
Wanda Lane, Tobin Drive & Ronald Court
In summer 2019, Halifax Water and the Halifax Regional Municipality will be upgrading infrastructure on Wanda Lane, Tobin Drive and Ronald Court. This project includes Phase 3 of the Ellenvale Run Rehabilitation Project.
Chisholm Avenue Sewer Main Replacement Project
Due to a number of pipe failures this spring and earlier this summer, Halifax Water is undertaking an urgent repair of the sewer main on Chisholm Avenue. This work is necessary to reduce the risk of further infrastructure failure that would impact local residents, the general public and the environment.
Lucasville Road Water Transmission Main Project
Halifax Water through its contractor, Atlantic Road Construction and Paving (ARCP) Limited, will be installing 3.7 km of water transmission main along Lucasville Road.
Lake Major Dam Replacement
The existing Lake Major Dam was constructed in the 1940's. It is a timber crib structure and has reached the end of its service life. The dam must be replaced in order to enhance public safety and protect the integrity of the Dartmouth water supply.
