On behalf of Halifax Water, Harbour Construction Limited will be replacing the water main and sections of wastewater main on Spry Avenue this summer. Work is expected to begin in mid-June. This work will take place along the full length of Spry Avenue. The existing water main is near the end of its service life. The work is expected to take approximately eight weeks to complete.
During this project, from time to time, you will see workers within 2 metres of each other while they work to maintain the critical water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure serving your home. Halifax Water is still mindful of the recommendations to maintain a 2 metre distance between employees and contractors, and every effort will be made to achieve this. However, some tasks cannot be completed safely otherwise. As an essential service, in these instances, Halifax Water and its contractors have been exempt from the 2 metre social/physical distancing rules. Halifax Water and its contractors will use additional PPE to protect themselves when undertaking these activities.
We ask that residents please ensure they give construction crews at least 2 metres of distancing as well.
