Sunday’s efforts began at 7 a.m. and are meant to complete the work that was being carried out on Friday and Saturday near the intersection of Cobequid Road and Glendale Drive.

Halifax Water issued a boil water advisory following a water main break on Friday when a 24-inch-diameter water line broke twice, resulting in the possible occurrence of low chlorine residual in the water.

The area affected is along Cobequid Road, from Glendale Drive outbound towards Fall River.

That area includes the communities of Fall River, Waverley, Windsor Junction, Capilano, Miller Lake, Frame, Silverside and Lakeview.

As of Sunday, that boil water advisory remains in effect, with the utility company advising that its customers should boil tap water for one minute prior to use for consumption or cleaning.

Halifax Water said customers may still experience discoloured water after the repairs are completed.
