What’s going on

Hey everyone, 

I know the blog has been silent for a long time, but first I was away, and then I got busy (as we all do, I know, no excuses). But today is a monster storm day and I happen to have it off.
I’m guessing many of you do too. So I figured what better day to update the blog and tell you about some of the things coming up for when the snow melts. Here’s hoping for spring. The announcements below are courtesy of Chebucto Connections and Councillor Linda Mosher.

Update: Work on Chain of Lakes Trail 
Halifax Water and their contractor, Dexter Construction, 
have begun their work on the Chain of Lakes trail. 
In late February, soil and rock probing exercises took 
place at 10 metre intervals to better determine bedrock 
depths. 14 testing pits were also dug to assess bedrock 
depth. This required that the trail be closed temporarily. 
In March, Dexter began rock trenching exercises along 
the proposed pipe route. If successful, this could reduce 
or eliminate the need for rock blasting in some areas. 
The trail, from Raines Mill Road to Brook Street, closed 
on March 17th
. The stretch from Chain Lake Drive to 
Ashburn Driveway will be closed until late June. Portions 
of the BLT trail will re-open earlier. For regular updates, 
please visit www.lakesidediversion.com or follow Halifax 
Water on Twitter @halifaxwater.
