Hydrant Flushing May 13/14
The Halifax Water Department will continue its hydrant flushing program on Monday, May 13, 2019 and Tuesday, May 14, 2019 in the Lingan Street area.
The mains will be flushed between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 12:00 midnight Monday through Thursday. The work will continue until the entire system is flushed. Water users should check the water for discoloration before using it to wash light colored clothing.
The discolored water is safe for human consumption as it is caused by harmless sediment that has been stirred up from the bottom of the mains. The discoloration will clear up in a short period of time.
The Department apologizes for any inconvenience the flushing may cause, but it must be done to maintain the quality of our water.
If you have any questions or need more information, please contact the Water Department at 781-293-1733.
