If you have recently discovered that you have lead water pipes, or you are looking at buying a property with existing lead pipes, then you are likely concerned about the negative health effects this could have on yourself and your family. It’s estimated by the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) that there are still approximately 10,000 to 15,000 homes in the Halifax area with lead water pipes in the main water supply line to the house.
Lead water pipes were extremely common in Nova Scotia in houses and businesses built before 1950, and the incidence of lead in outdoor water supply lines increases in certain neighbourhoods in the Halifax peninsula and central Dartmouth. Water line replacements in the areas of Halifax, Bedford and Dartmouth have been very common in recent years.
