Don’t turn on the hose beginning September 1 for any outside watering as a complete ban begins. Restoration of the Halifax water tower begins September 1 and the tank will be emptied and readied for painting, inside and out. Halifax residents may use their wells for irrigation but must prominently display their well permit numbers, or risk being charged in violation by the Halifax Water Dept.
While it is hoped that the work will be finished by November 1, it might not be completed until as late as December 1. Keith Swanson, Halifax Water Superintendent asks for full co-operation from residents to assure there is enough water for drinking and fire protection.
