Major Halifax Water Projects

The major construction projects Halifax Water is currently undertaking

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. Below are some of the projects currently underway at Halifax Water.

Chisholm Avenue Sewer Main Replacement Project

Due to a number of pipe failures this spring and earlier this summer, Halifax Water is undertaking an urgent repair of the sewer main on Chisholm Avenue. This work is necessary to reduce the risk of further infrastructure failure that would impact local residents, the general public and the environment.
