Hydrant Flushing



The Halifax Water Department will start flushing the water mains on or about May 18, 2020 and will take approximately two weeks, weather permitting. The first week will cover south and west of Route 58. The second week will cover north and east. The mains will be flushed between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. 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. We apologize for any inconvenience the flushing may cause, but it must be done to maintain the quality of our water.
