Water Service & Traffic Advisory – Quinpool Road, Peninsular Halifax – Water Main Repair
Halifax Water crews are on-site working to repair a major water main on Quinpool Road, Halifax. This repair will impact water service for peninsular Halifax. No estimate of service restoration.
Crews are making changes to the water distribution system to provide as many customers as possible with water service during this repair.
Quinpool Road is open to local traffic only between Quinn Street and Connaught Street, Halifax. Experienced traffic control personnel will be on-site to manage traffic flows. Sidewalks remain open.
Customers on or near the Halifax peninsula may experience discoloured water during/after this repair.
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).
