(May 31, 2023) Effective immediately, all Halifax Water watershed lands are closed to members of the public. This closure will be in place until further notice. Halifax Water is taking steps to protect our water supplies and to comply with the provincial ban on all woodland activity. This is in an effort to reduce the potential for more wildfires in Nova Scotia. These restrictions apply to Halifax Water property near watersheds and provincially or federally owned lands within protected water areas that Halifax Water manages.
This is consistent with the approach being taken by municipal and provincial authorities to reduce the risk of further forest fires in wooded areas.
