**** Halifax Water Release
Hillside Avenue, Lower Sackville – Water Main Repair
Halifax Water crews are responding to a water main break near 44 Hillside Ave in Lower Sackville. Water service has been temporarily shut down to allow crews to complete the repair. There is no estimate of water service restoration at this time.
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.
There will be a lane drop around the work area during the repair.
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).
