FALL RIVER/WINDSOR JUNCTION: Customers in the communities of Fall River, Waverley, Windsor Junction, Miller Lake, Frame, Silverside and Lakeview may experience temporarily discoloured water as a result of work in the area earlier today.

Customers who experience discoloured water should run the COLD water at one faucet for about 10 minutes. You should see the water clear.

Do not use the hot water faucet since this will draw discoloured water into your hot water heater/tank, which could make the problem worse.

If the water fails to clear after 10 minutes, wait for a few hours and again try running only the cold water. To learn more about discoloured water, visit www.halifaxwater.ca/discoloured-water.
