After Halifax Water completed emergency repairs to its Duffus Street wastewater pump station last night the equipment was quickly overwhelmed and clogged with rags and wipes.
It’s a dirty job, but someone has to do it and crews are working as safely and as quickly as possible to unclog the pump and screen. Once clear, testing will commence to return the system to normal.
Halifax Water is reminding residents of the three “P’s”… PEE POO & PAPER. “Flushable wipes” do not breakdown and clog the system. They belong in your garbage.
Halifax Water will notify residents when systems return to normal.
