Hydrant Flushing Notice
The Halifax Water Department will start flushing the water mains on or about April 25, 2017. The mains will be flushed between the hours of 7:00 P.M. and 12:00 midnight Monday through Thursday. The work will continue until the entire system is flushed and will take 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 our water.
Halifax Clean-Up Day
The Halifax Beautification Committee will host a Halifax Clean-Up Day/Earth Day celebration on Saturday, April 22 from 10am to noon, starting at the Halifax Town Hall. The goal is to remove trash and litter from Halifax roadsides, parks, curbsides, schools, forests, fields and more...and to keep it that way! Help us model responsible citizenship for all the residents of Halifax. This event will occur rain or shine with pizza at Town Hall at noon for all participants. If you are not available to participate on April 22, the Beautification Committee is eliciting "Neighborhood Captains" to coordinate days and times through April 30. Want to participate? Call Amy at 781-775-5229 or Greg at 508-821-6267 to indicate what day(s) you would like to volunteer. They will connect you with a group and an assigned area. Whatever you can
contribute, even 30 minutes will make a difference. You should bring wear long pants, long sleeves, and gloves. Trash bags will be provided by the Beautification Committee. Use all safety precautions when picking up trash and litter. Call the Fire Department if you find needles: do not pick them up or touch them.
