Halifax Water and our contractor, Dexter Construction, are undertaking significant work at the intersection of Cobequid Road and Glendale Avenue.
Part of this work involves the connection of the new section of water main on Cobequid Road to the existing water distribution system at the intersection of Cobequid Road and Glendale Avenue. This work has impacts on water service and on traffic in the area.
Water Service Impacts
During this work, customers in the areas of Lower Sackville, Bedford Commons, Waverley, Lakeview, Fall River, & Windsor Junction may experience lower than normal water service. Water service in these areas is expected to return to normal by 6:00 PM on Wednesday, July 21.
We ask that customers in these areas consider reducing their non-essential water usage. Doing this will help ensure that residents have water when they need it. Learn more about water conservation here.
