Halifax Water crews will be completing routine seasonal hydrant maintenance across Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) for the next several weeks.
This maintenance, which is required to ensure the operation of the hydrants throughout the system, includes turning hydrants on and off. This may cause discoloured water for customers in the areas of this work. While the discoloured water remains bacteriologically safe, it is recommended you not use discoloured water for drinking, preparing food and beverages, or laundry.
If you experience discoloured water, run the cold water at one faucet for about 10 minutes. You should see the water clear.
In response to COVID-19, Halifax Water staff will only enter into homes for emergency work or water service connections.
When Halifax Water staff do need to enter a home, the staff member(s) will be wearing protective coveralls, a disposable face mask/respirator, eye protection, disposable gloves and will have Halifax Water identification. This equipment will be worn for all in-home work and is not an indication of the presence of COVID-19 on any property.
