Some Halifax residents are still without water after the main line ruptured

Halifax fire crews are preparing a mobile truck to assist those along Halifax’s Herring Cove Road who still do not have access to water, following the water line disruption Thursday.

“Placing a mobile pickup truck with water to take it to areas where we know residents may have trouble driving,” says Assistant Principal Roy Holler.

Halifax Fire made water available at Station 60 Thursday night and Friday morning. Holler says more than 100 4-liter jugs were handed out.

Halifax Water says Thursday’s water main break has been repaired, however some residents have yet to restore their water service.

“It was difficult. My wife has an autoimmune disease, so dirty water, without water, is very inconvenient. So, I had to go places and get water, so that she could have coffee or tea,” says resident Bruce Byrnes .

“Not being able to take a shower or anything like that, wash, all the normal things that you take for granted every day, it was difficult.”

Herring Cove Road will be closed between Dentith Road and Sussex Street for roadway repairs. There is a detour.
