About District 4
District 4 is home to approximately 25,000 residents and is made up of the larger suburban communities of Cole Harbour, Westphal, and Lake Loon. Historically, Cole Harbour was a prosperous, well-cultivated market garden and dairy community serving the city of Halifax and surrounding area. Today, the district is a growing, vibrant community made up of mostly residential areas and some busy business districts along Route 207. The community of Westphal is home to an important regional watershed and water filtration plant that supplies water to the surrounding community of Dartmouth and those east of the Halifax Harbour.

Harbour East Transmission Line Project Update:
In 2010-11, Nova Scotia Power worked with a volunteer committee of community representatives to assess potential routes for a new transmission line to serve the energy needs of the growing communities of Dartmouth, Cole Harbour, and Eastern Passage.
Earlier this year, Nova Scotia Power conducted detailed analysis of future customer needs in these communities, and determined that construction of a new transmission line is not required.
Nova Scotia Power and the Halifax Regional Municipality appreciate the community's participation in this public planning process, and recognizes the significant contributions of the Harbour East Public Advisory Committee.
