Doing Business

Our success depends on our people, partners, companies and contract workers

Halifax Water establishes standard requirements for constructing and distribution projects.

Halifax Water Regulations

Regulatory compliance applies to both the public's use of Halifax Water's, wastewater and stormwater systems as well as Halifax Water's operation and maintenance of these systems. This includes contractors, developers and businesses.

Violations of regulatory compliance regulations often result in legal punishment, including federal fines.

Request for Wastewater Rebate

Businesses connected to the Halifax Water system may be eligible for a rebate on water not discharged into the sanitary sewer system (i.e. water evaporated from cooling towers or used to make a product). The wastewater rebate is based on the difference between the amount of the water used and the amount of wastewater discharged to the Halifax Water system.

The wastewater rebate, for qualified applicants, must be applied for on an annual basis.

New Connections & Renewals

Halifax Water can advise if water, wastewater, and stormwater service is available to your property using your civic address. The process for setting up a new connection to Halifax Water differs slightly between a single unit dwelling/townhouse and a multi-unit, industrial, commercial, or institutional building.
