Halifax Water crews will be undertaking water system maintenance on Wednesday, December 1, from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM. Water service will be maintained during this work; however, some customers on the Halifax peninsula may experience a change in water pressure and potentially discoloured water.
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, where it is harder to flush out. If the water fails to clear after 10 minutes, wait for a few hours and again try running only the cold water.
Learn more about discoloured water and report it online at www.halifaxwater.ca/discoloured-water.
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).
