**** Halifax Water Release
Water Distribution System Flushing Update
Halifax Water crews are continuing with our seasonal hydrant flushing activities to maintain high-quality water throughout the water distribution system in HRM each day from 10:00 PM to 6:00 AM.
As a result of this water distribution system maintenance, some customers in or near the flushing areas may experience temporarily discoloured water. Residents can check the online interactive map at: www.halifaxwater.ca/notice/2021-water-distribution-system-flushing to see if they are in or near the potentially impacted areas.
To report discoloured water or to learn more, visit www.halifaxwater.ca/discoloured-water.
These activities will continue for approximately six more weeks as crews move throughout the distribution system. Further updates will be provided as flushing progresses to other areas. There will be no traffic impacts.
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).
