Water shutdown taking place at Inverness Consolidated Memorial Hospital on Sunday, Nov. 29

INVERNESS, N.S. – A domestic water shutdown will take place on Sunday, Nov. 29 at Inverness Consolidated Memorial Hospital to complete required maintenance on the system.

The shutdown will begin at 11 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 29 and will last for two hours. The hospital’s sprinkler system will also be shut down for the day to allow maintenance work to take place.

While access to the hospital is not impacted, a number of measures have been put in place for the shutdown. During the shutdown, bottled water will be available on site and can be used instead of tap water. Water and hand sanitizer will be available for handwashing. People are also asked to follow all signage that’s on site during the shutdown.

Signage will include directions for toilet flushing and handwashing. People are asked to not turn on water taps while the shutdown is underway.

A team will be on hand during the shutdown to address any concerns. COVID-19 measures including visitor restrictions, social distancing, wearing a non-medical mask and good hand hygiene will also remain in place.

Nova Scotia Health appreciates your patience and cooperation while work is underway.
