East Hants & Districts Chamber of Commerce

A heads up to all those in the Barney Brook area.Barneys Brook Forcemain Project Update

As work progresses on this project, there will be some temporary disruption to water services. The Contractor will advise residents/businesses 24 hours in advance of any disruption to service.

The Municipality recommends that residents/businesses should store enough water for use during the disruption and, as a precautionary measure, turn off their hot water tank. After service is restored, some customers may experience temporary water discolouration, should this occur, please run the water for a short period of time.
