Where central water service is supplied by Halifax Water, additional water treatment systems are not required.
Halifax Water has recently been contacted by customers with reports of aggressive actions by a water treatment company indicating they are acting on behalf of Halifax Water and/or HRM to install water treatment systems. Neither Halifax Water nor HRM have authorized or approved any company to act on their behalf to install water treatment systems.
