Voluntary Water Conservation Measures for Customers Served by Lake Major
The prolonged hot, dry weather has resulted in reduced water levels in Lake Major. Lake Major serves approximately 103,000 residents in the communities of Dartmouth, Cole Harbour, Eastern Passage, North Preston and Westphal (see attached map for affected service area).
In order to conserve water, Halifax Water is asking residents and businesses supplied by the Lake Major Water Supply Plant to voluntarily reduce their water usage, until further notice. See the attached Water Conservation and Consumption information for ways to reduce water usage.
Voluntarily conserving water now will reduce the need for mandatory water use restrictions in the near future.
