**** Halifax Water Release
Walker Street & Third Street – Water Main Repair
Halifax Water crews are on-site near 29 Walker Street working to repair a water main. Water service has been shut down for customers on Walker Street and Third Street while crews complete this urgent repair. There is no estimated time of service restoration.
A lane drop is in place near 29 Walker Street.
Once the repair is complete, customers in the area may experience 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, 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).
