Necessary works may cause water discolouration in Forrest, Griffith and Kingston

March 15, 2017

Icon Water crews will conduct necessary work to upgrade a valve on Fitzroy Street, Forrest on Thursday, 16 March 2017.

As a result of these works there will be a change in direction of water flow. This may cause temporary water discolouration in the Forrest, Griffith and Kingston area due to naturally occurring sediment being stirred up within the network.

It is not recommended that you drink the water if it appears, tastes or smells objectionable. Customers experiencing discoloured water are advised not to use washing machines and dishwashers as it may stain clothing or clog filters.

Whilst it is difficult to predict to what degree the water will be affected, Icon Water advises that any discolouration should clear with normal use. If you continue to experience discoloured water after Thursday, 16 March 2017, let us know by calling 02 6248 3111 and selecting option 1.

Icon Water would like to take this opportunity to apologise to our customers in the affected area for any inconvenience this necessary work may cause.
