This water main repair is now complete, and the system is being refilled with water. Customers at low elevations in the system will see their water service return to normal later this evening – it will take longer for customers at higher elevations to see their water service return to normal.
Customers in the area may experience discoloured water following this repair.
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. If the water fails to clear after 10 minutes, wait for a few hours and again try running only the cold water. Learn more about discoloured water and report it at: www.halifaxwater.ca/discoloured-water.
Herring Cove Road will remain closed to all traffic between Dentith Road and Sussex Street as crews work to restore the road near the site of this repair. A detour is in place.
For the safety of work crews and residents, please observe social/physical distancing requirements (2 metres of separation).
