Preparing Our Customers & Infrastructure for Extreme Weather
(January 9, 2024) Halifax Water will continue working closely with the city and the province throughout the extreme weather event forecasted for Wednesday, January 10.
Teams have been preparing for this weather, inspecting stormwater infrastructure to ensure it is operating at full capacity and mitigating areas of risk. This includes ensuring that equipment and supplies are readily available so crews can respond to storm-related issues.
