Halifax is one of Canada's oldest cities, and with that comes aging water and sewer infrastructure that needs renewal.
Over the next 30 years, Halifax Water plans to invest about $2.6 billion to upgrade infrastructure to ensure the continued delivery of high quality water, wastewater and storm water services to benefit our customers and the environment. Repair of the Northwest Arm Trunk Sewer is at the top of our priority list. The sewer is over 100 years old and in deteriorating condition.
This is a big job and a significant investment in the community at approximately $18 million. The project has been approved for funding by the Federal and Provincial governments, in combination with Halifax Water, provided it can be completed by March 2018.
