Water service has been restored to customers impacted by the water main repair on Quinpool Road, Halifax.

Impacted customers should run the COLD water at one faucet for about 10 minutes prior to resuming normal use. Do not use the hot water faucet since this could draw discoloured water into your hot water heater/tank.

Quinpool Road will remain closed to all but local traffic between Quinn Street and Connaught Avenue until approximately 6:00 AM Saturday September 4, 2021, when street restoration work is expected to be complete.

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).
