Preparing for Extreme Weather Event

Published: 12:25 PM | February 22, 2024
Updated: 12:50 PM | February 22, 2024

Halifax Water is advising residents of an increased risk of localized flooding due to the forecasted severe weather event. The combination of heavy rain, milder temperatures, and significant snow cover will create surface-level run-off.  

To help avoid localized flooding, Halifax Water is encouraging residents to check their storm drains and catch basins to ensure they are clear of snow, ice, and debris. If customers see a blocked storm drain or catch basin, we ask that you clear them, if you are able, and it is safe to do so.  

Customers with driveway culverts should ensure that snow is not blocking the flow of water.
