Halifax Water says some customers living in the Bedford area may have periodic discoloured water for the rest of the month.
This is because crews are doing water system maintenance work at the Bedford Water Reservoir for the next three weeks.
"Any customers who experience discoloured water should run their cold water taps until the internal plumbing is clear," the utility said in a news release. "They should also avoid washing light coloured clothes until their internal plumbing is clear."
The water is still safe to drink
No loss of water, wastewater or stormwater service is expected and there shouldn't be any impact on drivers or pedestrians.
"We apologize for any inconvenience this necessary infrastructure improvement work may cause," said Halifax Water.
