Water Interruption - July 7, 2016

Beginning at 8:00 AM Thursday, July 7th, 2016, and continuing to approximately 3:00 PM, there will be a scheduled water interruption affecting the residents on Acadia Street from Linden Avenue to Highland Avenue Highland. The interruption is necessary to facilitate the reconstruction of Highland Avenue.

Residents are advised to stockpile the necessary water needed during the interruption prior to 8:00 AM Thursday, July 7th, 2016.

Once service is re-established you may experience some discoloured water. If so, you can flush your system by running the cold water for several minutes. This will help eliminate any dirt and air that may have gotten into the lines during the upgrade. It’s best to flush through a tap without a strainer such as a bath tub tap or outside hose bib.

You may contact the Town of Wolfville Public Works Department at (902) 542-2382, should you have any questions or concerns related to the interruption.

The Town of Wolfville apologizes for any inconvenience and appreciates your patience and understanding as improvements to the Town of Wolfville continue.

Wolfville: A Cittaslow Community!

citta web230

The Town of Wolfville was officially designated as a Cittaslow community in April 2016. Only the third Canadian community to be designated, Wolfville joins 176 municipalities in 27 countries to be recognized by Cittaslow International for its commitment to “slow city” principles. To be designated, a community must fulfill over 50 criteria addressing environmental protection and healthy lifestyles, support for local products, agriculture and artisans, community engagement, social justice, celebration of and respect for local culture, heritage and traditions, and the thoughtful development and use of technology for sustainability and community well-being. Wolfville is proud to be included in this select group of municipalities world-wide that share our values and vision of sustainability and quality of life. This is a community driven initiative, supported by Wolfville Council, and in the coming months a volunteer Cittaslow Committee will be identifying projects to strengthen and enhance our role in this international network of slow cities.
