Mandatory Water Use Restrictions Lifted for Customers Served By Lake Major
The water restrictions in place since September 10th for customers served by Lake Major are being lifted effective immediately. Water levels at Lake Major have returned to sustainable seasonal levels. Lake Major serves the communities of Dartmouth, Cole Harbour, Westphal, North Preston and Eastern Passage (see attached map for affected service area).
Halifax Water would like to thank all customers who helped to conserve up to 2 million litres/day during the water restriction period.
To better serve customers in the greater Dartmouth area, construction is currently underway on a new dam at Lake Major. The new dam, which is scheduled for completion in summer 2019 will allow Halifax Water to better manage lake levels and provide for mandated fish passage through the dam.
