Fire Hydrant & Catchbasin Interactive Mapping



Halifax Water has created an interactive map of fire hydrant and catchbasin locations in Halifax Municipality. Users can use this valuable tool to locate hydrants and catchbasins in their neighborhoods for all kinds of applications such as locating a nearby hydrant for home insurance purposes, in times of inclement weather (i.e. snow/ice storms, excessive rain events, etc.), or general interest, just to name a few.
