Important Notice Re: Water Conservation Order

 For Town Water Customers, please be advised that Town Staff are in the process of determining the source of a major water leak. Combined with the mechanical issues we experienced on Friday, these circumstances have led to the water towers being at critically low levels. Customers may experience low or no water pressure until the situation is resolved.

In order to alleviate the demand on the water system and to allow the water tower levels to increase to a normal range we are asking that all water customers conserve their water use until further notice. We would also like to note that the water quality remains high and there is no requirement to boil your water. We will provide updates as the situation unfolds and appreciate your patience.

Home Warming Program

Interested in FREE Home Upgrades to Save on Heating Bills? 


 HomeWarming helps Nova Scotians living on a low wage save money on heating bills and feel more comfortable at home. There’s no catch!HomeWarming offers no-charge energy assessments and home upgrades to income-qualified homeowners. If an efficiency audit discovers that upgrades will help reduce heating and power bills, they will be installed at no cost to the homeowner.A typical house loses 45% of its heat through the walls, floors and roof. Upgrades like improving insulation and draft-proofing can help keep a home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. And since heating and cooling make up around 60% of energy costs, reducing these bills can make other household expenses more manageable.

.HomeWarming is offered by Clean Foundation and Efficiency Nova Scotia, and proudly sponsored by Nova Scotia Power and the Province of Nova Scotia.Speak confidentially with a Service Advisor: call 1-877-434-2136 (toll free), or visit
