**** Halifax Water Release
Water Service & Traffic Advisory – Lower Sackville, Waverley, Lakeview, Fall River, & Windsor Junction – Cobequid Road Water Main Replacement
Halifax Water and our contractor, Dexter Construction, will be connecting 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 will continue until approximately 6:00 AM on Monday, July 19.
Water Service Impacts
Halifax Water takes any disruption in service to our customers very seriously. As such, temporary connections have been made within the water distribution system in an attempt to maintain water service for all customers in Lower Sackville, Waverley, Lakeview, Fall River, & Windsor Junction. Even with these preparations, water pressure may be reduced in the areas noted above during this work. (See attached map.)
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.
For the safety of crews and motorists, while work is taking place within the intersection of Cobequid Road and Glendale Avenue, experienced traffic control personnel will be directing traffic through the intersection. Local traffic access will be maintained, but we strongly recommend that you use alternative routes and avoid this intersection. Motorists are also reminded that speed fines double in work zones. (See attached map.)
Sidewalks remain open.
Over 500 feet of prematurely failing water main has been replaced on Cobequid Road.
Our focus is on providing a highly reliable supply of water to our customers. By completing this much-needed replacement work and extending the Windgate Drive water main line later this year, Halifax Water customers impacted in these areas will have increased system reliability.

For the safety of work crews and residents, please observe social/physical distancing requirements (2 metres of separation).
