On Friday, October 2, 2020, Brycon Construction Limited, on behalf of Halifax Water, will be completing a water service shutdown impacting a small number of customers who have been notified of this work.
This water service interruption will take place from 6:00 PM on Friday, October 2, until 6:00 AM on Saturday, October 3.
Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction on Main Street near Brigadoon Avenue. Experienced traffic control personnel will be on-site. Sidewalks will remain open.
Customers in the area may experience discoloured water during and after this work. 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, which could make the problem worse. 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, visit 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).
