Hydrant Flushing Notice
The Halifax Water Department will start flushing mains on or about October 14, 2014. The mains will be flushed between the hours of 7:00 P.M. and 12:00 midnight Monday through Thursday, and will continue until the entire system is flushed. Approximately two (2) weeks, weather permitting. Water users should check the water for discoloration before using it to wash light colored clothing.
The discolored water is safe for human consumption as it is caused by harmless sediment that has been stirred up from the bottom of the mains. The discoloration will clear up in a short period of time.
We apologize for any inconvenience the flushing may cause, but it must be done to maintain the quality of water to which you are accustomed.
Beginning on May 27, 2014 water restrictions will go into place. Check the announcement from the Water Department for more details.
