Major Halifax Water Projects

The major construction projects Halifax Water is currently undertaking

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.

The CWWF Program is funded by Infrastructure Canada and the Province of Nova Scotia. A portion of the project is funded through a Local Improvement Charge (LIC) administered by the Halifax Regional Municipality.

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.
