Possible Discoloured Water – Hammonds Plains/Glen Arbour Area Due To Firefighting
Due to firefighting activities on the Hammonds Plains Road near Long Burn Drive, some customers in the Hammonds Plains – Glen Arbour area may experience temporarily discoloured water due to higher than normal water flows required to fight the fire.
If discolouration occurs, 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.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
