Halifax Water crews are currently undertaking water system maintenance activities at the Bedford Water Reservoir. During this work some customers in the Bedford area may experience periodic discoloured water. Crews will make every effort to minimize impacts to customers.
This water system maintenance work is scheduled to last approximately three weeks.
Any customers who experience discoloured water should run their cold water taps until the internal plumbing is clear. They should also avoid washing light coloured clothes until their internal plumbing is clear. The water remains bacteriologically safe to drink.
There will be no impact to motorists or pedestrians and no loss of water, wastewater or stormwater service.
We apologize for any inconvenience this necessary infrastructure improvement work may cause.
