A water main break on Orchard Avenue in Wolfville is affecting water service to residents in parts of the town.
The upper section of Orchard Avenue, Cape View Drive, Minas View Drive and Kinley Close areas of the town are being affected by the break. Service is not expected to be restored until 9 p.m.
Once service is re-established, residents may experience some discoloured water and are asked to run water for several minutes. This will help to flush the system and eliminate dirt and air that may have gotten into the lines during the repair. It is best to flush through a tap without a strainer, such as a bath tub tap or outside hose bib.
Crews are working diligently to have water service restored as soon as possible.
