i'm in one of the 3 identical looking buildings before dominos. still clear
I just moved out of the 2 just past Needs/ Dominos towards Kearney Lake. Was I glad to leave.
I can predict a shitty ride home already. Only two lanes are supposed to be open by suppertime. They said the entire job would be done within 24 hours.
What area do you live in?
I live outside the city. So anything to slow me down adds to my hour commute.
It is. Same as Aquafina and any other water that is basically ozonated tap water. If you're gonna drink bottled water drink stuff that comes from a natural spring source. But yea we should avoid drinking bottled water totally. We need to ensure that our tap water is held to the highest standards and if we become dependant on bottled water then the standard of tap water will go to shit.
Was just talking to the water commision - road still closed - no guarantees on a lane open at suppertime. If you can take a diff route - do it. People are being allowed to go to their homes on the road.
weird, corner of parkland and farnham gate and still tea.
i can probably see in your bedroom tuner. what do you think of that. ps - still fresh and clear.
I'm at the top of Cowie Hill in the Spry and I just noticed my tap/toilet water has a brown tinge to it.
Kearney Lake Road Remains Closed After Water Main Break
(Wednesday, August 8/07) - The Halifax Regional Water Commission is advising that Kearney Lake Road, between Dunbrack Street and Parkland Drive, will remain closed throughout the night due to the water main break that occurred this morning at approximately 12:00 AM.
Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes for the drive home and to follow the posted detour signage.
HRWC are anticipating repairs being carried out over night, prior to the morning rush hour.
The break has caused discolouration throughout the distribution system. The discolouration does not pose a health risk and monitoring is being carried out for quality assurance. We apologize to our customers for any inconvenience.
Did you leave it run awhile?
I and Bonnebelle live in Cowie Hill, too... white here
I'm all tea on and I'm just off Parkland. Gonna go run the taps for a while though.
suckers. still clear
Holy fucking traffic clusterfuck on the drive home. Took me an hour to drive from work on Robie to Bedford. Just on the bedford highway. I had a serious case of road rage.
you need a glass of discolored water to calm you down
Mine is crystal clear :wtc:
I may have to go to my parents tonight to do laundry
I took the bridge and went over Magazine instead. From the sounds of it I picked the right direction.
watch those things, they can cause mold if you dont change the filter every month.
As for our city water, I love it. Tastes great and its free. Our city bottles its water and sells it now, its called H2GO
Now the discoloration has gone from brown to black. It's stained our toilet bowl. I don't want to do dishes or take a shower in black water.
My g/f was saying the water was a different color at her work. She's at Minacs in Purdy's Wharf. I can't believe that one water main break had such an impact on the city's water.
water is officially fucking nasty. going to parents house in enfield to do laundry before superbikes. haha nasty
I just watched the news and a spokesman for the water commission said it would be at least a couple of days before things are back to normal.
I'll have to go buy a few jugs of water tomorrow.
At 7pm it was pretty tea-like but now it's just slightly off-colour....
the brown shower was not appealing this morning
i'm probably gonna have breakfast then go out to enfield where the water is actually clean
i cant believe I just wrote that
So the water is all cleared up in the Enfield/Elmsdale area now? I know as of last friday night they still had a boil order on.
oh shit, i forgot about that!!!
I can't catch a break today. Don't tell me I'm gonna have to use a ...... laundromat
