Water Service & Traffic Advisory – Basinview Drive – Water Main Repair
(December 3, 2021) Halifax Water crews are on-site working to repair a water main on Basinview Drive, Bedford, between Meadowbrook Drive and Sunrise Hill. Water service will be temporarily shut down in this area. No estimate of service restoration. This area is closed to all traffic during the repair. Experienced traffic control personnel will be on-site to manage traffic flows. Sidewalks remain open. Customers in the area may experience discoloured water following this repair. Customers who experience discoloured water should run the COLD water at one faucet for about 10 minutes. You should see the water clear. Do not use the hot water faucet since this will draw discoloured water into your hot water heater/tank. If the water fails to clear after 10 minutes, wait for a few hours and again try running only the cold water. To learn more about discoloured water and to report it, visit www.halifaxwater.ca/discoloured-water<www.halifaxwater.ca/discoloured-water>. Motorists should expect delays and use alternate routes. Motorists are also reminded that speed fines double in work zones. We apologize for any inconvenience this necessary infrastructure improvement work may cause.
For the safety of work crews and residents, please observe social/physical distancing requirements (2 metres of separation).
