The Lead Line Rebate is part of the Lead Line Replacement Assistance Program. It was created to help those Halifax Water customers who need to replace their lead private lateral.
Following recent news stories around lead in Nova Scotian drinking water, our Lead Service Line Replacement Program team has been receiving a higher than normal volume of customer inquiries. As a result, response times will take longer than normal until these inquiries can be processed.
We thank those customers who have reached out for their interest in our programs. We ask that customers who think that they may have a lead service line check the map on this page.
- If your home is within the area shown on the map and was built before 1960, then your home may have a lead service line.
- If your home is not within the area shown on the map, then it is very unlikely your home has a lead service line, regardless of the age of the property.
- If you are not the registered property owner, Halifax Water is unable to release private service information/provide sampling of private services without the registered property owner's request. If you are not the registered property owner, we ask that you contact your landlord or property manager.
