Mandatory Water Consumption Restrictions for Customers Served by Lake Major

The prolonged hot, dry weather has resulted in low water levels in Lake Major. Lake Major serves the communities of Dartmouth, Cole Harbour, Eastern Passage, North Preston and Westphal.

In order to conserve water, Halifax Water is instituting mandatory water conservation restrictions for all residents and businesses supplied by the Lake Major Water Supply Plant, until further notice.


The water conservation measures include:

– No lawn, garden, plant watering or other outside water usage

– No car/RV or other vehicle washing at home.

Commercial car washes remain available for the time being.

Visit www.halifax.ca/home-property/halifax-water/water-services/water-conservation-consumption for a full list of ways to conserve water.


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.
