Stormwater is the water from rain, melted snow and ice, that runs off roofs, parking lots, driveways, and other hard surfaces. Halifax Water provides stormwater services to thousands of customers throughout Halifax Regional Municipality. For some, this means ditches and culverts. For others, it means storm drains in the street (catchbasins) and underground pipes.
Water that has been used in your home, business, or as part of an industrial process is now waste. The wastewater system refers to the structures, pipes, devices, equipment, processes and related equipment used to collect, transport, pump or treat wastewater.
Halifax Water operates three large state-of-the-art, ISO 14001 Certified, water supply plants and six modern smaller community supply plants to provide water to 360,000 customers throughout the Halifax Municipality.
