Our Association is involved in many technically complex, politically sensitive and community based projects and initiatives. Our Association has a proactive relationship with various levels of government on numerous issues.

Halifax Water RDC

Status: Ongoing

Halifax Water filed an application with the NSUARB on November 21, 2019, to approve “a revision to the regional development charge for water, and wastewater infrastructure and for approval of amendments to the schedule of rates, rules and regulations for water, wastewater and stormwater services to revise the regional development charge”. The last date to provide Notice to Speak was March 18, 2020, and the hearing was scheduled for March 23-27, 2020, however these dates have been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. UDI plans to speak on behalf of the development industry and our members, but we encourage individuals to also consider speaking. Any questions on the Application or the process should be directed to Kevin Gray (keving@halifaxwater.ca) or Kenda MacKenzie (mackenk@halifaxwater.ca).
