Water Shortage

The Halifax Regional Municipality is working on solutions for residents without water due to wells going dry, and the Emergency Management Department is monitoring the situation very closely and reviewing the data to determine how far spread the issue is. 

The municipality is making three facilities available across the region where affected residents can access drinking water until conditions improve. These facilities are:  

  • Station 56 – 8579 St Margarets Bay Road, Black Point
  • Station 24 – 32 Riverside Avenue, Musquodoboit Harbour
  • Station 48 – 1581 Beaver Bank Rd, Beaver Bank

Water will be available every Tuesday, beginning August 18 from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

Residents on wells who are experiencing water shortage issues are strongly encouraged to contact 311 to report a water shortage, as this will allow the municipality to understand where shortages are occurring and place a supply of drinking water.
