The prolonged hot, dry weather has resulted in historic low water levels in Lake Major. Lake Major serves the communities of Dartmouth, Cole Harbour, Westphal, North Preston and Eastern Passage.
In order to conserve water, Halifax Water is instituting mandatory water conservation restrictions for all residents and businesses supplied by the Lake Major Water Treatment Plant, until further notice. The water conservation measures include:
– No lawn, garden, plant watering, pool filling or other outside water usage
– No car/RV or other vehicle washing at home. Commercial car washes remain available for the time being.
for a full list of ways to conserve water, or see the attached information.
These water restrictions are being implemented to maintain essential water service for all customers in the Lake Major service area. Conserving water will help avoid a potentially serious situation involving future water outages.
