Update: Clovis Avenue – Water Service Restored

 

Halifax Water crews have completed the water main repair near 26 Clovis Avenue. Water service has resumed for customers in the area. Clovis Avenue will remain closed to all but local traffic until approximately 3:00 PM today while crews restore the work site.

Customers in the area may experience discoloured water following this repair.

Customers who experience discoloured water should run the COLD water at one faucet for about 10 minutes. You should see the water clear. Do not use the hot water faucet since this will draw discoloured water into your hot water heater/tank, which could make the problem worse. If the water fails to clear after 10 minutes, wait for a few hours and again try running only the cold water. To learn more about discoloured water, visit www.halifaxwater.ca/discoloured-water.

Motorists should expect delays and use alternate routes. Motorists are also reminded that speed fines double in work zones.

We apologize for any inconvenience this necessary infrastructure improvement work may cause.
For the safety of work crews and residents, please observe social/physical distancing requirements (2 metres of separation).
