The Annapolis Valley Trails Coalition apologizes - because of circumstances beyond our control, we are delaying the official opening in Wolfville of the Harvest Moon Trailway scheduled for Saturday, August 19th @ 10 am until a later date.
As with all construction projects, things never go as planned, weather and events impact the completion date timelines. In this case, the reason for the delay is to allow for the completion of the final surfacing of the Wolfville to Grand Pre portion of the Harvest Moon Trailway.
A date for the Grand Opening in Wolfville will be set once the trail is close to completion.
The Town of Wolfville wishes to inform residents that flushing of water mains is scheduled this to start this year on Monday, August 14th, 2017 . This process is necessary maintenance of the water distribution system throughout the Town.
Included with this notice is a proposed schedule of areas we will be working in each day. The schedule can be affected by weather or other operational issues and therefore is subject to change.
Surrounding areas could also be effected, outside of the scheduled areas.
Full schedule download: 2017 Water Main Flushing Schedule
During flushing, residents may experience discoloured water or low water pressure. If you experience discoloured water, simply flush your system by running the cold water for several minutes. This will help eliminate any dirt and/or air that may have gotten into the system during the flushing process. It is best to flush through a tap without a strainer such as a bath tub or outside hose bib.
If you have any questions or concerns related to the interruption, please contact the Wolfville Public Works Department at 542-2382 or the Water Department at 542-3676. The Town of Wolfville apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.

Wolfville Farmers' Market has started a new initiative called WFM2Go to grow more local by providing you greater access.
WFM2Go is an online version of the Wolfville Farmers' Market where you can choose exactly what you want to order from over 150 products and over 15 vendors. On Wednesdays, between 4-6pm, you can pick up your weekly order as one deliciously convenient package from the Market (also in Canning and Berwick).
Of course we'd still love to see you at the Saturday Market (8:30am-1pm) with over 60 vendors, but we recognize that not everyone can make it and we wanted to be more avvailable as we work to grow more local. When you collect your WFM2Go order on Wednesday, you can also join us for live music, our community vibe and a Market Supper (4-7pm).
Public Awareness and Support are Critical elements in Emergency Planning.
The most immediate help after a disaster is from people nearby when the event occurs. That means it is your work colleagues, neighbours, friends, family and members of the community who are the ones who will be giving or needing help.
Are you interested in helping your community and playing a critical role during major events, emergencies and disasters? Join the Town of Wolfville’s Emergency Volunteer Group and show you care for our Town and region.
The Wolfville Emergency Volunteer Group welcomes your application if you:
Note: All personal information will be retained by the EMC and not distributed to other organizations
You will be contacted if your help is needed. This will depend on: the needs of affected areas (which may take time to assess); volunteer availability, location and skills required. We encourage you, if safe, to help your family, friends, neighbours, and groups you are already connected with.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering to help the Town of Wolfville’s emergency response and recovery efforts
