Response to Stormwater Damage and Public Safety
(July 22, 2023) Halifax Water continues to receive a high volume of calls from customers identifying washed-out driveways and culverts. Our crews are now in the field, assessing damage and conducting inspections of issues with our infrastructure. Repair work has already started and will be prioritized and occur over the upcoming days and weeks. We encourage all property owners to inspect their driveway culverts, but only when it is safe.
