Attention residents, motorists, cyclists and pedestrians, following water main valve adjustments in Central Dartmouth, some customers may be experiencing discoloured water. To help remove this discoloured water from the system, beginning at approximately 10:00 PM this evening, Halifax Water crews will flow water from fire hydrants in and around Central Dartmouth.
Emergency services in the area have been made aware of this hydrant flushing.
Halifax Water recommends that customers experiencing discoloured water flush their cold water lines until the water is clear and avoid using the water for direct consumption purposes until the water is clear. We recommend that customers not use the hot water faucet since this will draw discoloured water into your hot water heater/tank, which could make the problem worse.

For the safety of work crews and residents, please observe social/physical distancing requirements (2 metres of separation).
We apologize for any inconvenience this necessary infrastructure improvement work may cause.
