UPDATE: Water service has been restored to customers on and near 12 Raymond Drive.

There is stop-and-go traffic in the work zone. Crews will remain on-site to reinstate the work zone.

Customers in the area may experience discoloured water following this repair.

Customers who experience discoloured water should run the COLD water at one faucet for about 10 minutes. You should see the water clear. Do not use the hot water faucet since this will draw discoloured water into your hot water heater/tank, which could make the problem worse. If the water fails to clear after 10 minutes, wait for a few hours and again try running only the cold water. To learn more about discoloured water, visit



Halifax Water crews are on-site working to repair a water main near 12 Raymond Drive, Lower Sackville. Water service will be temporarily shut down near this area. No estimated time of service restoration.

There is stop-and-go traffic in the work zone. Experienced traffic control personnel will be on-site to manage traffic flows. Sidewalks remain open.

Motorists should expect delays and use alternate routes. Motorists are also reminded that speed fines double in work zones.

We apologize for any inconvenience this necessary infrastructure improvement work may cause.

For the safety of work crews and residents, please observe social/physical distancing requirements (2 metres of separation).
